Reviews

"Represents a much needed re-evaluation of the impact of Roman warfare on agriculture and the Roman 'peasant class' during the third and second centuries B.C."
-- "Journal of Roman Studies"
Rosenstein offers a radically new interpretation of the impact of military service on the peasant economy. Its stimulating insights and sophisticated modelling make this work a major contribution to the debate on one of the most crucial issues of Roman Republican history.(John Rich, University of Nottingham)
"Contributes greatly to our understanding of one of the more important issues in Republican history."
-- "Historian"
"An important book, packed with big ideas. . . . Challenges many long-held assumptions. . . . A ground-breaking book, which deserves to be read carefully by anyone who is interested in the history of the middle Republic."
-- "International Journal of the Classical Tradition"
