New. $28.95 * "In opposition to Mommsen, the author believes that both patricians and plebeians took part in the legislative assemblies, and that political class distinctions at Rome arose from economic causes. His argument is well-founded and very important. The rest of the book gives a very accurate and full description of the activities and functions of the assemblies, affording a complete history of comitial legislation. An indispensable reference."
