Outlines a four century period in which ancient Rome was an

Republican Rome struggled with external possessions and
the wealth this provided for the ruling elite in their effort to
dominate the state. The failed reform movement of the
Gracchi brothers guaranteed that a polarized society would
continue. This led to the Roman Revolution and the
establishment of the imperial dynasties, the first of which
was created by Julius Caesar and his successors and JulioClaudians. The Pax Romana was a direct outcome of the
seizure of power by Julius Caesar and for the next two full
centuries Rome governed a world that was larger than the
continental United States. The signs of mismanagement,

century A.D. in the reign of the philosopher-king Marcus
Aurelius eventually led to a crisis that was both political as
