A Companion to Greek Democracy and the Roman Republic

A Companion to Greek Democracy and the Roman Republic offers a unique approach to ancient participatory communities by examining Greece and Rome through a comparative lens. Organized by topic, paired chapters explore subjects such as institutions, law, culture, economics, and entertainment first from a Greek and then from a Roman perspective, surveying origins, concepts, and practices in both communities. Taken together, the pairs of chapters provide a complex portrait of the formation, organization, development, and imperilment of these communities in two different civilizations. The volume's comparative structure allows for an enriched understanding of participatory communities in the ancient world.

The Companion brings into dialogue an international array of scholars with a wide range of methodological approaches. The result is an invaluable resource for students and scholars alike.
