I have not written for some time related to my manuscript related to civism during the era of the Roman Republic. The reason is that I have been reading and taking extensive notes on an almost shocking work authored by Richard E. Mitchell. Mitchell has written a revision on early Roman history that is carefully research and virtually demonstrates that, contrary to traditional and modern scholars, the struggle between Orders (patrician and plebeian) never took place, but were fabricated. Consequently, he has greatly influenced my work. Luckily, I found Mitchell's work in time in that I am just know drafting the latter chapters of my manuscript. I find Mitchell to be not only revolutionary, but convincing and that his work is worthy of carrying considerable influence in the study and revision of Roman history. More later! I have developed close communication with Mitchell and I respect him greatly.
