Historiography at the End of the Republic

Oxford University Press

As the Romans expanded their hegemony over the Mediterranean basin and beyond, their methods of engagement varied to suit individual situations and shifting objectives. These methods moulded the impressions of the local elite and their attitudes to the new ruling power. In composing the contemporary historical record of Roman dominion, the core authors in this book had the greatest opportunity to express their views on the approach of the new ruling power and its representatives. All the events discussed in this chapter took place within the living memory of the authors and were decisive in shaping the world in which they lived. As members of the provincial elite, the core authors offer unusual perspectives on these events originating from the subjugated peoples.
