Typically offered: 9T3T
Outlines a four century period in which ancient Rome was an empire beginning after the Second Punic War of 201 B.C. 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 Julio-Claudians. 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, social stagnation, and military pressure at the end of the 2nd century A.D. in the reign of the philosopher-king Marcus Aurelius eventually led to a crisis that was both political as well as economic. prereq: Credit will not be granted if already received for HmCl 3041 or HIST 3041
