Emotion, Restraint, and Community in Ancient Rome (Book)
Title: Emotion, Restraint, and Community in Ancient Rome
Author: Robert A. Kaster
Abstract: Emotion, Restraint, and Community examines the ways in which emotions, and talk about emotions, interacted with the ethics of the Roman upper classes in the late Republic and early Empire. By considering how various Roman forms of fear, dismay, indignation, and revulsion created an economy of displeasure that shaped society in constructive ways, the book casts new light both on the Romans and on cross-cultural understanding of emotions.

Cicero: Speech on Behalf of Publius Sestius (Book)
Title: Cicero: Speech on Behalf of Publius Sestius
Author: Robert A. Kaster
Abstract: This volume contains a new translation of, and commentary on, Cicero's defense of Publius Sestius against a charge of public violence. Pro Sestio is arguably the most important of Cicero's political speeches that survive from the nearly two decades separating the Speeches against Catiline and the Second Philippic. Its account of recent history provides any student of Rome with a fascinating way into the period; its depiction of public meetings, demonstrations, and violence are highly pertinent to the current debate on the place of "the crowd in Rome in the late Republic"; the speech is also among the best introductions we have to traditional Republican values and ethics in action.
