Overview

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”).

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.
