The late Elizabeth Rawson (1934-1988) was a distinguished specialist in the history, society, and culture of the later Roman Republic and Augustan period, whose sudden death at the end of a visit to China came when she was at the height of her powers, and had just been elected as a Fellow ofthe British Academy. Her papers form a closely related group, published over a short period of time between 1971 and 1989. The topics covered include the workings of Roman politics and society, historical and antiquarian thinking at Rome, and literary and cultural history. They are reproduced here in the order inwhich they were published, and together form an essential contribution to the understanding of the central period of Roman history.
Elizabeth Rawson is at Corpus Christi College, Oxford.

Editorial Reviews

'Both the printer and the editor, Fergus Millar, are to be praised for a nearly faultless product; a 'General Index' and 'Index of Persons' to all the pieces round off the volume. Reading these historical essays evokes envy for their consummate learning: at each step in the argument noproblem is shirked and on almost every page a tiny riddle is solved or a new suggestion made. The cumulative effect of these pieces is astonishing... Perhaps the greatest testaments to a scholar's work are only the solid foundations on which it allows others to build but the spur and inspiration itprovides for the work of later enquirers. R. will always be remembered as a scholar uniquely gifted in both these ways.Thomas H. Tarver, Journal of Roman Studies
