  • Crisis and Constitutionalismby Benjamin Straumann

    Oxford University Press 2016; US$ 84.99

    The crisis and fall of the Roman Republic spawned a tradition of political thought that sought to evade the Republic's fate--despotism. Thinkers from Cicero to Bodin, Montesquieu, and the American Founders saw constitutionalism, not virtue, as the remedy. This study traces Roman constitutional thought from antiquity to the Revolutionary Era. more...

  • Daily Life in Ancient Romeby Brian K. Harvey

    Hackett Publishing Company, Inc. 2016; US$ 20.50

His translations of the original texts are superb?both accurate and elegant. And he contextualizes... more...

  • Battling the Godsby Tim Whitmarsh

    Faber & Faber 2016; US$ 21.86

    How new is atheism? In Battling the Gods , Tim Whitmarsh journeys into the ancient Mediterranean to recover the stories of those who first refused the divinities. Long before the Enlightenment sowed the seeds of disbelief in a deeply Christian Europe, atheism was a matter of serious public debate in the Greek world. But history is written by those... more...

    Oxford University Press 2016; US$ 54.99

    The first exhaustive treatment of ritual brotherhood in Byzantium, this book challenges the "Boswell Thesis" and argues that the ecclesiastical ritual to bless a relationship between two men bears no resemblance to marriage, but has its origins in early monasticism. more...
