Politics and Society in Imperial Rome offers fresh new interpretations of the politics, society, and culture Rome's imperial era.

  • Argues that the early principate was fundamentally incompatible with the persisting structures of the Roman Republic
  • Demonstrates how these contradictory systems affected the development of Roman society
  • Includes case studies on the imperial court and the emperor Caligula, as well as chapters on the scholarship of Theodor Mommsen and Christian Meier
