"An immensely prolific scholar of the last three centuries of the Roman Republic, Gruen has been moving toward studies of the more purely cultural aspects of the period. [He] considers the means and the extent to which the Roman aristocracy assimilated Greek culture and, in assimilating it, asserted their own separate Roman identity. . . . The book illustrates Gruen's strengths: mastery of the ancient evidence and ability to argue it."--Choice
