The Roman Revolution is a profound and unconventional treatment of a great theme - the fall of the Republic and the decline of freedom in Rome between 60 BC and AD 14, and the rise to power of the greatest of the Roman Emperors, Augustus. The transformation of state and society, the violent transference of power and property, and the establishment of Augustus' rule are presented in an unconventional narrative, which quotes from ancient evidence, refers seldomly to modern authorities, and states controversial opinions quite openly. The result is a book which is both fresh and compelling.

About the Author:


Sir Ronald Syme (1903-1989), one of the most distinguished Roman historians, was Camden Professor of Ancient History at Oxford University. In addition to numerous awards and honors, he collected honorary degrees in eleven countries on five continents.

Review:

`Review from previous edition a work of brilliant scholarship which can be enjoyed by the expert and the layman alike'
A.J.P. Taylor, Guardian

`his work, well documented and well written, extraordinarily persuasive and interesting, is the best book on Roman history that has appeared for many years'
Sir Maurice Bowra, Spectator

`one of the most important books on Roman history since Mommsen'
A.F. Giles, Classical Review

`the most complete and the most challenging history of its subject which has appeared for many years, in England perhaps at any time ... Nor is this book only for the specialist, for the subject is of prime importance, the information is the best which modern research can provide.'
Oxford Magazine
