Download e-book for iPad: Remembering the Roman People: Essays on Late-Republican by T. P. Wiseman

By T. P. Wiseman

within the Roman republic, simply the folks may well move legislation, purely the folks may perhaps opt for politicians to workplace, and the very be aware republica intended 'the People's business'. So why is it usually assumed that the republic was once an oligarchy? the most cause is that almost all of what we all know approximately it we all know from Cicero, a good guy and an outstanding author, but in addition an energetic right-wing flesh presser who took it with no consideration that what was once solid for a small minority of self-styled 'best people'
(optimates) used to be solid for the republic as an entire. T. P. Wiseman translates the final century of the republic at the assumption that the folk had a coherent political ideology of its personal, and that the optimates, with their trust in justified homicide, have been liable for the breakdown of the republic
in civil war.
