B. Instruments Valuable tools of research; familiarity with them is necessary for any serious scholar of Greco-
Roman Culture; the judicious employment of them is a necessity of any serious cross-(sub)disciplinary research. Sources: Papyri and Inscriptions:

III. Modern Scholarship: terrains and trajectories of the field; overviews of current questions; novel approaches; issues of debate and their reasons; points of contention and the evidence on which they hinge; intellectual frameworks; theories and their applications; problems, problematics, and investigative procedures and purposes. Overviews Alföldi, Geza. The Social History of Rome (1985, or reprinted 1988), or if you prefer, read the original German: Römische Sozialgeschichte, 1975). A good overview of the shape of Roman social history as a discipline, and the kinds of questions social historians ask. Brunt, P. A. 1971. Social Conflicts in the Roman Republic, or, read the later remake of this project, the long chapter in Brunt‘s The fall of the Roman Republic and related essays, 1988) A groundbreaking analysis of the interrelation of the following aspects of Roman society: agrarian economics, slaveholding, warfare, the demographics of the army, elite values, and the rise of dominant warlords in the late republic. (This account, widely accepted for a generation, is now being challenged: see Rosenstein and Scheidel below.) Garnsey, Peter, and Richard Saller. 1987. The Roman Empire : economy, society, and culture. A series of essays offering overviews of particular problems in (as the title suggests) the economy, society, and culture of the early empire. Well worth looking at, especially if you are interested in one of the particular topics on which they write. Scullard, H. H. From the Gracchi to Nero. 3rd edn, 1970. This book provides a good overview of What Happened between about B.C. 140 and A.D. 70, and the notes in the 3rd edition do an excellent job of indicating the sources for each period and question. But beware: Scullard‘s historical interpretations are extremely oldfashioned (in fact, completely obsolete in many respects), and one should read Brunt and Alföldi for more modern framings and analyses of key questions. Specific Periods of the classical Brown, Peter. 1978. The Making of Late Antiquity. A fundamental (and blessedly brief) analysis of the end world and its metamorphosis into something else.
Cornell, T. J. 1995. The beginnings of Rome: Italy and Rome from the bronze age to the Punic Wars, c. at least a few chapters, especially at the beginning of the book, to get a sense of the problems historians face, and the nature of the evidence they have, in dealing with early Rome.

Specific Topics or Approaches Bradley, Keith R. look at EITHER Slaves and Masters in the Roman Empire: a study in Social Control (1987) OR Slavery and society at Rome (1994). Fundamental surveys of slavery as a social, economic, and ideological institution in the Roman world. Both are short books, and highly readable. Flower, Harriet. 1996. Ancestor Masks and Aristocratic Power in Roman Culture. Already something of a classic, this book exemplifies the emerging ―cultural‖ approach to Roman history: the investigation of cultural systems, i.e. social practices and beliefs/values/ideologies as they are interlinked and as they mutually affect one another. Gardner, J. F. 1986. Women in Roman Law and Society. The title is perfectly descriptive: this is an overview of the actualities of women‘s existence in Rome, and also of the corpus of law expressly dealing with women. This book, besides being interesting and useful, exemplifies the products of the ―women‘s history‖ movement of the 1970s and 1980s, which in turn emerged from the feminist movement of the 1960s and 1970s. In recent years, this
