(p.1) Introduction
Imperialism, Cultural Politics, and Polybius

Christopher Smith

Liv Mariah Yarrow

Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter situates the work of Peter Derow and the chapters in this volume, which respond to his views on Roman imperialism, within broad currents of thought on the nature of Roman military activity and foreign policy. Specific reference is made to a rather different approach, recently championed by Arthur Eckstein, to show the relevance of Derow's own work and the importance of the debate both for ancient history, and for contemporary political theory and, potentially, practice.

Keywords:   Roman imperialism, military activity, foreign policy, political theory
