There is no other published book in English studying the constitution of the Roman Republic as a whole. Yet the Greek historian Polybius believed that the constitution was a fundamental cause of the exponential growth of Rome's empire. He regarded the Republic as unusual in two respects: first, because it functioned so well despite being a mix of monarchy, oligarchy and democracy; secondly, because the constitution was the product of natural evolution rather than the ideals of a lawgiver. Even if historians now seek more widely for the causes of Rome's rise to power, the importance and influence of her political institutions remains. The reasons for Rome's power are both complex, on account of the mix of elements, and flexible, inasmuch as they were not founded on written statutes but on unwritten traditions reinterpreted by successive generations. Knowledge of Rome's political institutions is essential both for ancient historians and for those who study the contribution of Rome to the republican tradition of political thought from the Middle Ages to the revolutions inspired by the Enlightenment.

The constitution of the Roman Republic featured a system of checks and balances that would eventually influence the American founders, yet it had very different characteristics from the system of separation of powers that the founders created. The Roman senate gave advice but did not legislate; the people voted directly on bills and appointments in popular assemblies; and a group of magistrates, led by a pair of consuls, proposed bills, brought prosecutions, served as judges, led military forces, and performed other governmental functions. This paper analyzes the Roman constitution from the perspective of agency theory, and argues that the extensive checks and balances, which were intended to prevent the recurrence of monarchy, may have gone too far. Suitable for an earlier period in which the population was small and the political class was homogeneous, the constitution proved unworkable when Rome acquired a vast, diverse empire. The lessons of Roman constitutionalism for the American constitution are also discussed.

The politics of the Roman Republic has in recent decades been the subject of intense debate, covering issues such as the degree of democracy and popular influence, 'parties' and ideology, politics as public ritual, and the character of Rome's political culture. This engaging book examines all these issues afresh, and presents an original synthesis of Rome's political institutions and practices. It begins by explaining the development of the Roman constitution over time before turning to the practical functioning of the Republic, focusing particularly on the role of the populus Romanus and the way its powers were expressed in the popular assemblies. Henrik Mouritsen concludes by exploring continuity and change in Roman politics as well as the process by which the republican system was eventually replaced by monarchy. This original and readable book will be important for all students and scholars of Roman history and of politics in general.

Roms Aufstieg zur Weltmacht verlief über viele Stationen auf einem langen, wechselvollen Weg aus kleinen bäuerlich-landstädtischen Anfängen bis hin zum antiken Großreich. Die entscheidenden Weichenstellungen in diesem historischen Prozess erfolgten in der Zeit der römischen Republik, die in dieser großen Darstellung wieder lebendig wird. Anschaulich beschreibt Klaus Bringmann die entscheidenden Weg- und Wendemarken in mehr als 500 Jahren römischer Geschichte. Überblicksdarstellungen längerer Zeitspannen wechseln sich ab mit der Schilderung bedeutender, folgenreicher Ereignisse der inneren und äußeren Geschichte – wie etwa des Krieges gegen Karthago oder der Auseinandersetzung um die Reformbemühungen der Gracchen. In ‚Nahaufnahmen‘ werden die Protagonisten der römischen Republik vorgestellt: der sagenumwobene Brutus, der den letzten der römischen Könige vertrieben haben soll, der sprichwörtlich gestrenge Cato, aber natürlich auch Marius und Sulla, Caesar und Pompeius und schließlich Augustus, der die Republik zur Monarchie transformierte.
