Roman Papers by Ronald Syme
Book DescriptionBefore his death in late 1989, Sir Ronald Syme approved the publication of these 59 papers on Roman history which complete this collection of his life's work. Volume VI covers such varied topics as "Human Rights and Social Status at Rome", "Marriage Ages for Roman Senators", "Oligarchy at Rome: A Paradigm for Political Science", "Military Geography at Rome", "Diet on Capri ", "A Dozen Early Priesthoods", and "Some Unrecognized Authors from Spain ". Volume VII contains solely later, unpublished work which was still in manuscript form at the time of Sir Ronald's death. The final item is a spoof on Tacitus, comprising a Latin text on the story of Titus and Berenice with historical commentary. The work is aimed at scholars and students of Roman history, Roman literature, Roman philosophy, and classics.

Books By Author Ronald Syme
Roman Revolution, Paperback (August 2002)
The transformation of state and society, the violent transference of power and property, and the establishment of Augustus' rule and that of the Empire are presented in a narrative which quotes from ancient evidence, refers seldomly to modern authorities, and states controversial opinions openly.
Sallust, Paperback (June 2002)
Sir Ronald Syme became the first historian of the twentieth century to place Sallust - whom Tacitus called the most brilliant Roman historian - in his social, political, and literary context. This is a foreword of Syme that delivers biographical essays of Sir Ronald Syme in English.
Anatolica, Hardback (March 1995)
Written during the war, while the Sir Ronald Syme (1903-89) was himself in Turkey, this work on ancient Turkey offers a fascinating insight into the development of a great historian, and is itself an original study of the peoples and places of Asia Minor under Persian, Greek, and Roman rule.

This study deals with the nobility surrounding the monarchy of Caesar Augustus, which was reborn after years of civil war. The exposition ranges from the closing age of the Republic to Nero's demise, detailing a century-and-a-half of the history of Roman aristocracy and individual families.
