Cultural Politics in Polybius's i Histories i by Craige B. Champion

By Craige B. Champion

Polybius was once a Greek statesman and political prisoner of Rome within the moment century b.c.e. His Histories give you the earliest non-stop narrative of the increase of the Roman Empire. during this unique examine trained by way of fresh paintings in cultural stories and on ethnicity, Craige Champion demonstrates that Polybius's paintings plays a literary and political balancing act of heretofore unappreciated subtlety and curiosity. Champion indicates how Polybius contrived to tailor his historiography for a number of audiences, comprising his fellow Greeks, whose freedom Rome had usurped in his personal iteration, and the Roman conquerors. Champion focuses totally on the ideological presuppositions and predispositions of Polybius's diverse audiences so that it will interpret the obvious contradictions and incongruities in his textual content. during this method he develops a "politics of cultural indeterminacy" within which Polybius's collective representations of political and ethnic teams have diverse meanings for various audiences in several contexts. Situating those representations within the ideological, political, and old contexts from which they arose, his ebook provides new and penetrating insights right into a paintings whose subtlety and complexity have long past principally unrecognized.
