Beschreibung:

An examination of the importance and influence of Rome's political institutions on the rise of her power. The book explores the unwritten traditions that made up the constitution, how they were reinterpreted by successive generations and the contribution of Rome to the Republican tradition.
There is no other published book in English studying the constitution of the Roman Republic as a whole. Yet the Greek historian Polybius believed that the constitution was a fundamental cause of the exponential growth of Rome's empire. Knowledge of Rome's political institutions is essential both for ancient historians and for those who study the contribution of Rome to the republican tradition of political thought from the Middle Ages to the revolutions inspired by the Enlightenment.
