Revised and updated to include the latest research in the field, this second edition of a popular history text examines how the Roman republic was destabilized by the unplanned growth of the Roman Empire.
Central discussion points include:
- the government of the republic
- how certain individuals took advantage of the expansion of the empire
- Julius Caesar's accession to power
- the rise of the Augustan principate following Julius Caesar's murder.
Drawing on a wealth of recent scholarship and including an expanded and updated guide to further reading, a chronology, and a guide to the provinces of the Roman Empire, students of history and classical studies will find this a helpful and accessible introduction to this complex period in history.
