Product description

This book is a study of Sulla's policies in Italy and in the Greek East. Its main aim is to show how Sulla revived Rome's alliances with the local elites at a critical moment for the survival of her Mediterranean hegemony. The discussion calls into play a wide range of political, economic and religious issues, and the argument is developed from three complementary standpoints: role of elites, administration, and ideology. "Sulla, the Elites and the Empire" deals with both the impact of a prominent individual and the impact of the Roman empire. It sets outs to offer a new understanding of Sulla and his age and, more generally, to contribute to the understanding of the late Roman Republic.

Review quote

Given its original approach and implications for understanding the long-term impact of Sulla's policies, this study will be of great interest to those concerned with the social and political history of the last century of the Roman Republic, a tumultuous, yet defining moment in history. Christopher J. Dart (University of Melbourne), Ancient West and East 10 (2011)
