"[T]his book is bound to take its place as a standard work of Roman history, and a much-used starting point for further investigations of the nature and evolution of that still mysterious entity, the Roman Empire."--Fergus Millar, Times Literary Supplement
From the Back Cover
Richard J. A. Talbert examines the composition, procedure, and functions of the Roman senate during the Principate (30 B.C.-A.D. 238). Although it is of central importance to the period, this great council has not previously received such scholarly treatment. Offering a fresh approach to major ancient authors (Pliny and Tacitus in particular), the book also draws on inscriptions and legal writers never before fully exploited for the study of the senate.See all Product Description
