<p>A COMPANION TO THE POLITICAL CULTURE OF THE ROMAN REPUBLIC</p> <p>Beginning with contemporary Greek observers like Polybius, the political life of the Roman Republic has been the subject of intense debate for centuries. It remains bound up in the political history of modern Europe and the Americas.</p> <p>In <i>A Companion to The Political Culture of the Roman Republic</i>, readers will find a comprehensive and original approach to the subject of Roman Republican politics. The resources provided within examine the subject through the wider lenses of Roman political culture, recognizing that a system of shared values, traditions, and communicative strategies also shaped the social and political life of Rome throughout the Republic.</p> <p>An international and diverse team of contributors discuss the institutions, political actors, and the values, rituals, and discourse that characterized the Roman Republic throughout history. Many of the contributions appear for the first time in English in this volume, and a series of case studies, which demonstrate the practical application of modern approaches, offer significant value to students and teachers.</p> <p>Ideal for students at all levels of the ancient world, this book is also a must-read for anyone studying politics, political history, or the history of ideas.</p>
