This talk presents a review of precision top quark measurements at
linear e+e- colliders, with results from the ILC detector concepts and
the CLIC detector and physics group. After a brief overview of
established elements of the top physics programme, the contribution
focuses on new developments in the full-simulation studies of key
measurements. These include improvements in the experimental
strategies for top quark pair production in the continuum, both at
380-500 GeV and at high energy where top quarks are highly boosted.
New results are presented on the potential of a linear collider to
measure the top electro-weak couplings, where the precision on the
CP-violating dipole moment has been evaluated in full simulation for
the first time. The study into the potential of the top quark mass
measurement at threshold is updated, including a thorough evaluation
of theoretical uncertainties. New results on the reach of searches for
rare flavour-changing neutral current decays are presented as well.
