Synopsis:

"A commendable addition to a series intended to make history accessible to general readers."―Choice

The Roman Republic was one of the most civilized societies in the ancient world, ruled by elected officials whose power was checked by a constitution so well crafted that it inspired the founding fathers of the United States of America. Here Philip Matyszak describes fifty-seven of the foremost Romans of the Republic, spanning the centuries from its birth to its bloody death and including the best and the worst of the Roman elite: Licinius Crassus, a kind father and loving husband who crucified slaves by the thousands, or Cato the Censor, upright and incorruptible, xenophobic and misogynistic.

Supported by a wealth of pictorial and archaeological detail, these personal histories provide an overview of the development and expansion of Rome, encompassing foreign and civil wars as well as social strife and key legislation. The biographies are supplemented by time lines, data files, and special features that highlight different aspects of Roman culture and society. 320 illustrations, 110 in color

About the Author: Philip Matyszak has a doctorate in Roman history from St. John’s College, Oxford. His books include Legionary, Gladiator, Ancient Rome on 5 Denarii a Day, Ancient Athens on 5 Drachmas a Day, The Classical Compendium, Chronicle of the Roman Republic, and The Greek and Roman Myths. He lives in British Columbia, Canada.

Book Description Thames & Hudson. 1 Paperback(s), 2003. soft. Book Condition: New. Between its legendary founding by Remus and Romulus in the 8th century BC and its collapse under the dictator Augustus, the Roman Republic was one of the most civilized societies in the ancient world, ruled by elected officials within a constitutional framework so well crafted that it inspired America's founding fathers. With 293 captioned illustrations in color and black and white—including photos, art, drawings, maps, and timelines—this book from the author of Ancient Rome on 5 Denarii a Day profiles 57 of Rome's foremost citizens. Here are the best and the worst, from Licinius Crassus, a kind father and loving husband who crucified rebellious slaves by the thousands, to Cato the Censor, who remained upright and incorruptible (while being xenophobic and misogynistic). 240.
