The decline and fall of the Roman republic from the tribunate of Tiberius Graccus to the dictatorship of Caesar makes a fascinating if not an improving story, and the forces which drove the aristocratic society of Rome along its arrogant path to ultimate self-destruction still invite and repay further study. The essays in this volume deal with some of the major themes of the period: the emergence of the equestrian order and its struggle with the senate for control of the courts, the growing part played by violence in politics, the condition of the poor, and the values which men cherished or pretended to cherish in political life.
