Yet another review has been added, this time by Divi Filius...

 

With his first publication, the young Assistant Professor at Georgetown University, Josiah Osgood, does not attempt to challenge the mainstream beliefs on the decline of the republic; nor does he propose any new theories, he makes this clear in his introduction. Instead of focusing on the very few at the top; their politics and their wars, he focuses on how all of this affected the very many on the very bottom: the men and women around the Mediterranean who lived through, or died as a result of, the turmoil engulfing the final transition between Republic and Empire.

Nice review Divi Filius,

 

Sounds like a good book, it should be interesting to see the story of the rise of Octavian from a different perspective, I'll put this book on my list.

Good review, DF. Can my bookshelves stand yet another 'rise of Octavian'? On reading your review, yes they can. I may well take a punt on this.
