"By carefully identifying a 'mid-spectrum' population and then showing clearly how numerous and important they were in the Roman world, Haley makes an extremely sound, well argued, and well documented case for revising our basic concept of the organization of the free Roman social world... His scholarship is absolutely first rate." Robert C. Knapp, Professor of Classics, University of California, Berkeley
