This book examines how public, political discourse shaped the distribution of power between Senate and People in the Late Roman Republic. The 'ideology' of Republican mass oratory is analysed comprehensively and situated fully within the institutional, historical and physical contexts of the public meetings in which these speeches were heard.

Review of the hardback: '… an excellent study on late Republican politics as well as a work that offers plenty of new and stimulating insights into Roman rhetoric.

Review of the hardback: 'After decades of relative neglect the Roman contio has now become the focus of an intense debate about the people's role in Republican politics. This new study by Morstein-Marx represents the fullest and most ambitious treatment of the institution so far. It is a provocative and stimulating work which offers important new insights into the nature of Roman politics. The scholarship is impressive and the analysis often profound.'
