Abstract:

"The discussion in this volume offers an analysis of the defining roles of mass and elite elements in Greek and Roman society, and in their socio-political, economic, military and religious contexts. This interaction, whether it was in terms of conflict or in cooperation between the mass--the general body of (usually) citizens--and elite figures or groups within the various communities of ancient Greece, the Roman Republic and Empire, and during Late Antiquity, is given particular attention. The almost constant exchange between these two entities made them vital forces in every state's determination of public policy, social and political progress and, ultimately, success or failure"--Provided by publisher.
