Les Études Classiques
"Bringmann's thorough and detailed survey of the Roman Republic will be a welcome resource for those seeking an introduction to the period."
Celia Schulz, Yale University
"In this work, the author has shown himself to be fully conversant with both primary and secondary sources, and has succeeded in presenting a thorough analysis of the rise and fall of the Roman Republic. One particular strength of Bringmann?s study is that he frequently challenges the traditional interpretation of various events or policies, thereby preventing his work from being a mere historical narrative. I would certainly recommend this work to anyone interested in the history of the Roman Republic."
Christopher Epplett, University of Lethbridge
