This volume focuses on the changing relationship between warfare and the Roman citizen body, from the Republic, when war was at the heart of Roman life, through to the Principate, when it was confined to professional soldiers and expansion largely ceased, and finally on to the Late Empire and the Roman army's eventual failure.


`The twenty-three papers in these volumes are of a high standard of originality and scholarship and form an important contribution to a field of study increasingly at the centre of ancient history.' - Greece & Rome
