Wiseman's very selective use of secondary material stands out. This is one of the most learned of classical scholars, who knows the fields, both ancient and modern, inside out, and who argues meticulously against individual positions. * Christina Kraus, Bryn Mawr Classical Review *
This book is ground-breaking for its simple suggestion that the ideology of Roman popular politics is not entirely lost to us, and for its virtuoso demonstration that, fragmentary, inadequate and intensively studied as our sources for the period are, they may still have more to tell us. * Mary Beard, Times Literary Supplement *
All students of the Roman Republic will profit from the quality of scholarship in this volume, as well as from the whole concept of imagining a fresh perspective on a well-known historical period. * Harriet Flower, Journal of Roman Studies *
A book by Peter Wiseman promises a congenial blend of erudition and provocation - and this one does not disappoint ... this is a terrific book, not least because it exhibits a profound passion for the facts of the past, and the truths they reveal. * W. Jeffrey Tatum, Hermathena *
