Product Description

Review

"This book, which will be many things to many readers, will be valuable as a modern source and as a reference work vital in what is the ever increasing complex world of ancient historical research." ( Scholia Reviews , 2009) "Students cannot fail to benefit from the eminent collaborators [in this Companion].... Individual contributions have much for anyone keen to catch up." ( Greece & Rome , 2008) "It does provide readable, expert surveys of the rise of Roman power in the Mediterranean in the formative imperial era. In addition to chapters on political and social topics, this Companion offers fine surveys of topography, literature and literary sources, law, art and architecture, and Roman ′cultural identity.′...Highly recommended." ( Choice) “[Authors] do an excellent job of re–packaging Roman Republican history … and I applaud their efforts to provide … interesting debates within recent scholarship.” ( New England Classical Journal)

Review

"A Companion to the Roman Republic is a really exciting new resource. The contributors are individually heavy–hitters and collectively form a first–rate international team. The work covers not just the topics one would have counted on but other new ones that deserve to become canonical."
Andrew M. Riggsby, University of Texas, Austin

"A comprehensive work It far outstrips any competitor in this subject."
John Murrell, Journal of Classics Teaching

"A kaleidoscopic variety of points of views and insightful commentaries that finally does justice to the complexity of the subject and of its possible interpretations, while always remaining readable and clear."
Nicola Terrenato, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Format: Paperback
This is the second book in the Blackwell/Wiley Companion series that I have read and would recommend the Companion to the Roman Republic to anyone with a serious interest in ancient history. Although the book consists of essays written by many different authors, many of which have been translated into English I found the overall content extremely good. It filled in some of the gaps in my knowledge and certainly made me want to buy other books in the series. I have now purchased the Companion to Roman Empire and the Companion to the Ancient World - and look forward to reading them
