Between the Sack of Rome by the Gauls in 390 BC and the middle of the second century BC, a part-time army of Roman peasants, under the leadership of the ruling oligarchy, conquered first Italy and then the whole of the Mediterranean. The loyalty of these marrauding heroes, and of the Roman population as a whole, to their leaders was assured by a share in the rewards of victory, rewards which became steadily less accessible as the empire expanded - promoting a decline in loyalty of cataclysmic proportions.

The Greek World After Alexander 323–30 BC examines social changes in the old and new cities of the Greek world and in the new post-Alexandrian kingdoms. An appraisal of the momentous military and political changes after the era of Alexander, this book considers developments in literature, religion, philosophy, and science, and establishes how far they are presented as radical departures from the culture of Classical Greece or were continuous developments from it. Graham Shipley explores the culture of the Hellenistic world in the context of the social divisions between an educated elite and a general population at once more mobile and less involved in the political life of the Greek city.

During the first century BC, the Near and Middle Easy saw a great transition from the Seleucid and Ptolemaic Empires, by way of the brief Pontic and Armenian Empires, to the triumphant Parthian and Roman Empires. Richard D. Sullivan offers a guide to the central role of royalty during this period. He provides, through narrative and citations, a context for the frequent references to Eastern kings and queens by Caesar, Cicero, Strabo, Josephus, Tacitus, Appian, Dio, and others. He also discusses related inscriptions, coins, and papyri. Sullivan focuses on the personnel of the many dynasties which rules the Near and Middle East, from Thrace through Asia Minor and the Levant to Egypt, then eastward to Armenia, Mesopotamia, and Parthia. He studies such famous figures as Mithradates Eupator, Cleopatra, and Herod the Great as well as others now obscure. To ‘locate’ them properly, he provides a narrative history of each dynasty and draws them together in a coherent account of Eastern royal governance and its accommodations with Rome and Parthia.

No recent work of this scope exists in English, and most detailed textbooks on the Republic deal only with a selected period (thus both the Routledge and Fontana series allocate two volumes to the Republic, with Routledge making the break at 264 BC and Fontana, oddly, at the early point of 390 BC). There is, however, a powerful case (both intellectual and, I think, commercial) to be made for covering the whole period in a single volume. The intellectual case is that the major themes such as warfare and expansion and internal political development continue to evolve over the whole period and cannot be fully understood unless it is considered as a whole. The commercial case is that most courses cover the whole period, so that the books with an early cut-off point or late starting point tend to leave many courses not fully catered for. The proposed book will provide a straightforward and up-to-date narrative of events, in keeping with the specification for the Blackwell series: this is a need which the currently available competitors conspicuously fail to meet. The two central themes will be internal politics (the evolution of the Republic's institutions, political conflict, the Republic's collapse) and warfare and imperial expansion, and the interrelationship of these two themes will be brought out throughout. However, account will be taken of other developments, in society, economy and culture. A narrative of events alone cannot do full justice to this material, and so a number of thematic chapters are worked into the scheme of contents (especially chs 12-14, 24-27).

In this new and authoritative history of the Roman republic, distinguished historian Klaus Bringmann traces the rise of a small city state near the Tiber estuary into a power that controlled the Italian peninsula and created the final Empire of antiquity, an Empire that was to become both the most enduring in the ancient world and to have the most far-reaching consequences for posterity. Whilst this book is chronologically organized, giving the reader a clear sense of the historical progress and dynamics of Roman republican history, it also offers a coherent and authoritative overview of the culture, economics, religion and military might of the Roman empire, presented in an original and stimulating way. Thoroughly referenced and illustrated throughout, with a wealth of primary sources from great Roman writers such as Cicero and Plutarch, A History of the Roman Republic will be essential reading for university students in history and classical studies. It will also appeal to a wider audience of general readers who are interested in the history of the Ancient world and its legacy.
