Studies Roman politics from the early kings, through the Republic, to the age of dictatorships. The story unfolds against a background of wars, financial tangles, shifting foreign policy, and personal rivalries. Sir Frank finds the secret of Roman power in the dignity of its great men and the liberty of the small. Though centuries have elapsed since the Caesars, we need not look far to discover in our own day the same conflicts between personal ambition and the dream of peace with dignity that consumed Rome. This book underscores the fragility of all political institutions, including our own

19 editions published between 1939 and 1999 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume covers the history of the Roman Empire from the accession of Septimius Severus in AD 193 to the death of Constantine in AD 337. This period was one of the most critical in the history of the Mediterranean world. It begins with the establishment of the Severan dynasty as a result of civil war. From AD 235 this period of relative stability was followed by half a century of short reigns of short-lived emperors and a number of military attacks on the eastern and northern frontiers of the empire. This was followed by the First Tetrarchy (AD 284-305), a period of collegial rule in which Diocletian, with his colleague Maximian and two junior Caesars (Constantius and Galerius), restabilised the empire. The period ends with the reign of the first Christian emperor, Constantine, who defeated Licinius and established a dynasty which lasted for thirty-five years
