Description - Social Struggles in Archaic Rome by Kurt A. Raaflaub
The history of early republican Rome was marked by a long series of social and political struggles between the patrician elite and the plebeians (often called the "Conflict of the Orders"). In this new edition of Social Struggles in Archaic Rome, experts from both sides of the Atlantic illuminate the history of these social conflicts - examining their causes and nature; analyzing a wide range of social, economic, legal, religious, military, and political aspects; and considering the reliability of the historical sources. This edition is enhanced by addenda updating individual chapters in light of recent scholarship, a new chapter on aspects of material culture, an updated bibliography, and a new introduction.
