  • Summary
    • Rome evolved its own unique political structures as a result of both internal and external threats. During its ascendancy, it managed to contain social disorders and control the ambition of powerful individuals bent on subjecting the state to their wills. However, a series of crises undermined the Republic, and the political instability of late republican Rome provided the impetus for the creation of a more centralized form of power associated with the imperial throne. Thus the apex of Roman power coincided with a shift in its socio-political organization.
