Description - The Fall of the Roman Republic by David Shotter
Revised and updated to include the latest research in the field, this second edition of a popular history text examines how the Roman republic was destabilised by the unplanned growth of the Roman empire. Central discussion points include: - the government of the republic - how certain individuals took advantage of the expansion of the empire - Julius Caesar's accession to power - the rise of the Augustan principate following Julius Caesar's murder. Drawing on a wealth of recent scholarship and including an expanded and updated guide to further reading, a chronology, and a guide to the provinces of the Roman empire, students of history and classical studies will find this a helpful and accessible introduction to this complex period in history.
