Editorial Reviews


"Ethnic Identity and Aristocratic Competition in Republican Rome is a very fine work of scholarship. The topic touches on a wide range of important debates in Roman history, and at the same time the core issues of multiculturalism, plurality, ethnicity, and identity politics bear in a timely fashion on contemporary discussions. Different readers, including the reviewer, will probably not agree with every single argument posited, but this is not surprising in a work that is provocative and original. Farney is to be commended."
-Michael P. Fronda, McGill University, Bryn Mawr Classical Review

Book Description

In this book, Gary D. Farney explores how senators from Rome's Republican period celebrated and manipulated their ethnic identity to get ahead in Rome's political culture. He examines how politicians from these lands tried to advertise positive aspects of their ethnic identity, how others tried to re-create a negative identity into something positive, and how ethnic identity advertisement developed over the course of Republican history.
