This is a reprint of a work originally published by Collection Latomus.
As such, wealthy elites, including political luminaries of the Republic, and, later, the Roman emperors, used a variety of methods to exercise control. This included the urban food supply, one instrument by which they maintained social order. They also used the control of urban food supply as a means to secure and enhance their own positions by employing time-honored traditions to appease an ever-growing number of urban inhabitants. These measures became ever more vital as the city of Rome grew exponentially, until it reached a population of perhaps one million by the second century C. The lower classes were far from helpless, however. Their dissatisfaction or refusal to conform could disrupt the social order in significant ways.
Melvyn Bragg and guests discuss the impact that slaves had on the Roman Republic and Empire and the impact the Romans had on slaves, from the first conquests to the fall of Rome. Melvyn Bragg and guests discuss the role of slavery in the Roman world, from its early conquests to the fall of the Western Empire. The system became so entrenched that no-one appeared to question it, following Aristotle's view that slavery was a natural state. Whole populations could be marched into slavery after military conquests, and the freedom that Roman citizens prized for themselves, even in poverty, was partly defined by how it contrasted with enslavement. Slaves could be killed or tortured with impunity, yet they could be given great responsibility and, once freed, use their contacts to earn fortunes. The relationship between slave and master informed early Christian ideas of how the faithful related to God, informing debate for centuries.
Education in ancient Rome progressed from an informal, familial system of education in the early Republic to a tuition-based system during the late Republic and the Empire. The Roman education system was based on the Greek system — and many of the private tutors in the Roman system were Greek slaves or freedmen. The educational methodology and curriculum used in Rome was copied in its provinces and provided a basis for education systems throughout later Western civilization. Organized education remained relatively rare, and there are few primary sources or accounts of the Roman educational process until the 2nd century AD. Due to the extensive power wielded by the paterfamilias over Roman families, the level and quality of education provided to Roman children varied drastically from family to family; nevertheless, Roman popular morality came eventually to expect fathers to have their children educated to some extent, and a complete advanced education was expected of any Roman who wished to enter politics. At the height of the Roman Republic and later the Roman Empire , the Roman system of education gradually found its final form.

Slavery , condition in which one human being was owned by another. A slave was considered by law as property, or chattel , and was deprived of most of the rights ordinarily held by free persons. There is no consensus on what a slave was or on how the institution of slavery should be defined. Nevertheless, there is general agreement among historians, anthropologists, economists, sociologists, and others who study slavery that most of the following characteristics should be present in order to term a person a slave. The slave was a species of property ; thus, he belonged to someone else.

Slavery in the ancient world, not to mention in the city of Rome itself, was vital to both the economy and even the social fabric of society. Whilst it was commonplace throughout the Mediterranean region, and the Hellenistic regions in the east, it was not nearly so vital to others as it was to the dominance of Rome. As the Romans consolidated their hegemony of Italy and Sicily, followed by the systematic conquest of western Europe, countless millions of slaves were transported to Rome, the Italian countryside and Latin colonies all over Europe. Though slavery was prevalent in households throughout the city itself, it was on the farms and plantations where it had its greatest effect. The Roman conquests of Carthage, Macedonia and Greece in the 3rd and 2nd centuries BC altered what was once a luxury and privilege for the ruling elite into the predominant factor driving both social and economic policies for the Republic as a whole. The mass influx of slaves during this time period first was a sign of great wealth and power, but later destabilized an already fragile Roman class system. Farms originally run by small business families throughout Italy were soon gobbled up and replaced by enormous slave run plantations owned by the aristocratic elite.
- Бринкерхофф рассеянно кивнул, стараясь не смотреть на лиф ее платья. - Когда знаменатель равняется нулю, - объясняла Мидж, - результат уходит в бесконечность. Компьютеры терпеть не могут бесконечности, поэтому выдают девятки.
Мидж. Скорее. ГЛАВА 44 Фил Чатрукьян, киля от злости, вернулся в лабораторию систем безопасности. Слова Стратмора эхом отдавались в его голове: Уходите немедленно. Это приказ.
Нуматака проследовал прямо на коммутатор компании. Все звонки принимались единственным оператором на двенадцатиканальный терминал Коренсо-2000. Телефонистка, державшая трубку у уха, мгновенно поднялась и поклонилась, увидев босса. - Садитесь! - рявкнул Нуматака.
С вами хочет поговорить начальник шифровалки. Она сейчас будет. - Она? - Беккер рассмеялся. Он не заметил в АНБ ни одного существа женского пола.
Он. Он должен быть. Дворик под названием Апельсиновый сад прославился благодаря двум десяткам апельсиновых деревьев, которые приобрели в городе известность как место рождения английского мармелада.
АНБ очень серьезно относилось к дешифровке. Полученный чек превышал его месячное университетское жалованье. Когда он шел к выходу по главному коридору, путь ему преградил охранник с телефонной трубкой в руке.
Стратмор нахмурился: - Танкадо намерен назвать победителя аукциона завтра в полдень.
