    DescriptionAn analysis of the Roman oligarchy. It describes the methods by which the few most politically important clans in Rome, originally patrician, had expanded to take in so many promising plebeians - not only from Rome but from all over Italy - and make them part of the governing class. Drawing on documentary evidence, Friedrich Munzer offers a survey of the Roman aristocracy over the course of four centuries, including detailed information on virtually every Roman aristocratic family, from the beginning of the genuine historical tradition in Rome to the middle of the first century BC.
