Violence in republican Rome by A. W Lintott( Book )

43 editions published between 1968 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,084 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why did the aristocracy of the Roman Republic destroy the system of government which was its basis? The answers given by ancient authorities are moral corruption and personal ambition. The modern student finds only too inevitable the causal nexus of political conflict, violence, military insurrection, and authoritarian government. Andrew Lintott examines the roots of violence in Republican law and society, the growth of violence in city war, and the power of armies. It suggests in conclusion that this disaster was more the outcome of folly in the choice of political means than depravity in the choice of ends."--Jacket

Violence, civil strife, and revolution in the classical city, 750-330 B.C. by A. W Lintott( Book )

9 editions published between 1981 and 2015 in English and held by 591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Violent conflict between individuals and groups was as common in the ancient world as it has been in more recent history. Detested in theory, it nevertheless became as frequent as war between sovereign states. The importance of such 'stasis' was recognised by political thinkers of the time, especially Thucydides and Aristotle, both of whom tried to analyse its causes. Violence, Civil Strife and Revolution in the Classical City, first published in 1982, gives a conspectus of stasis in the societies of Greek antiquity, and traces the development of civil strife as city-states grew in political

Judicial reform and land reform in the Roman Republic : a new edition, with translation and commentary, of the laws from Urbino by A. W Lintott( Book )

29 editions published between 1992 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Twelve fragments of bronze were found near Urbino in the late fifteenth century, engraved with Roman laws - on one side a law concerning extortion, on the other an agrarian law. Dating as they do from the time of the Gracchi and of Marius in the later years of the Roman Republic, the laws are of considerable interest to Roman historians and are important evidence for the understanding of the revolutionary period that led to the overthrow of the Republic. In this volume, Dr Lintott offers a complete re-edition of these complicated and fragmentary texts, including a revision of the relationship between the fragments and full discussion of the manuscript sources of those now lost. The texts are accompanied by facing English translations and the commentary, which follows discusses in detail the issues involved in establishing and restoring the texts. A series of introductory chapters, written as far as possible in non-technical language, give a summary of the context of the laws from both a legal and an historical view point

The last age of the Roman Republic, 146-43 B.C. by J. A Crook( Book )

13 editions published between 1992 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volume IX of the second edition of The Cambridge Ancient History has for its main theme the process commonly known as the 'Fall of the Roman Republic'. Chapters 1-12 supply a narrative of the period from 133 BC to the death of Cicero in 43 BC, with a prelude analysing the situation and problems of the Republic from the turning-point year 146 BC. Chapters 13-19 offer analysis of aspects of Roman society, institutions, and ideas during the period. The chapters treat public and private law, the beginnings of imperial administration, the economy of Rome and Italy, and the growth of the city of Rome, and finally intellectual life and religion. The portrait is of a society not in decay or decline but, rather, outstripping its strength and attracting the administrations of men who rescued it at the price of transforming it politically

The Roman Republic by A. W Lintott( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Roman Republic (509-549 BC) was one of the most important periods in the history of that great civilisation. Set up after the overthrow of the monarchy, the Republic was designed to prevent a tyrant ever ruling Rome again. Power was entrusted to two annually elected consuls, while the Senate acted as their advisory council. In spite of initial instability, Rome grew rapidly from a small city-state into an empire that dominated the Mediterranean. But in 31 BC, after decades of civil war in which great warlords such as Iulius Caesar and Octavian fought for supreme power, the Republic perished. This book provides a fresh account of ancient Rome over five centuries of expansion and shows how ultimately it was the empire that brought the Republic to an end
