Sorry, description is temporarily unavailable.

In this book P. A. Brunt is concerned with social conflicts throughout the history of the Roman Republic. While his main emphasis is on the discontents of the rural and urban poor, he also discusses the internal struggles within the propertied class, for at times it was among sections of the propertied class, denied the political power or social esteem to which they aspired, that the poor found support against the narrow ruling oligarchy. The author holds that the discontents of the poor were a major cause of the fall of the Republic, but he also suggests in an epilogue that they gained relatively little from the monarchic system they had helped to found. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

    Excellent and absorbing introduction to the subject. Some broad understanding of the history is required. Brunt's clear, well written and concise prose is a pleasure to read. A non-specialist reader may be pleased to know that this book doesn't adopt the condescending tone which many popular historians these days seem to think is necessary.
