"This book, which will be many things to many readers, will be valuable as a modern source and as a reference work vital in what is the ever increasing complex world of ancient historical research." (Scholia Reviews
"Students cannot fail to benefit from the eminent collaborators [in this Companion].... Individual contributions have much for anyone keen to catch up." (Greece & Rome, 2008)
"It does provide readable, expert surveys of the rise of Roman power in the Mediterranean in the formative imperial era. In addition to chapters on political and social topics, this Companion offers fine surveys of topography, literature and literary sources, law, art and architecture, and Roman 'cultural identity.'...Highly recommended."

“[Authors] do an excellent job of re-packaging Roman Republican history … and I applaud their efforts to provide … interesting debates within recent scholarship.” ( New England Classical Journal)
"A Companion to the Roman Republic is a really exciting new resource. The contributors are individually heavy-hitters and collectively form a first-rate international team. The work covers not just the topics one would have counted on but other new ones that deserve to become canonical. I’m happy that this work is now available both for myself and for my students."
–Andrew M. Riggsby, University of Texas, Austin
"A comprehensive work … It far outstrips any competitor in this subject … I only wish it had been available when I was teaching the Late Republic."
–John Murrell, Journal of Classics Teaching
"A kaleidoscopic variety of points of views and insightful commentaries that finally does justice to the complexity of the subject and of its possible interpretations, while always remaining readable and clear."
–Nicola Terrenato, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
