The Roman Senate was one of the most powerful and influential legislative bodies in world history. In this volume, the only one of its kind written for young readers, a noted scholar tells how someone became a senator, his duties and the powers of his office, the edicts passed by the Senate, how senators took advantage of the Roman patronage system, and famous stories of the Senate in action.
"The Series reflects a variety of occupations, time periods, and global perspectives. The table of contents and index make it easy to locate what you want. There is enough detail for a student to compare workers of today with those in history. Recommended."
