"Henig approaches the problem from the opposite perspective and makes analysis and interpretation the driving motor behind her narrative of the republic. The republic was an extraordinarly complex entity, and Henig succeeds impressively in capturing the multiple levels of causality at play in ever major development and in integrating these levels to provide a compelling explanation of the political dynamics of the republic. In the crowded political landscape of the time, Henig has an unerring ability to identify the decisive events, explain why they were important, and illustrate how they affected later developments.."
