Abstract and Keywords

This article outlines the transformation of Rome from a republic to an empire. It looks at the attempts to diagnose the problems of the Roman Republic and examines the understandings of the crisis of the late republic that were developed under the principate. Finally, it studies the early principate and argues that the histories of power and politics joined to create new forms of subjectivity and new expressions of political engagement.

Keywords: republic, empire, problems, principate, power and politics, political engagement
