Catiline's War, the Jugurthine War, Histories by Sallust

Book Description

Sallust (86-c. 35 bc) is the earliest Roman historian of whom complete works survive, a senator of the Roman Republic and younger contemporary of Cicero, Pompey and Julius Caesar. His "Catiline's War" tells of the conspiracy in 63 bc led by L. Sergius Catilina, who plotted to assassinate numerous senators and take control of the government, but was thwarted by Cicero. Sallust's vivid account of Roman public life shows a Republic in decline, prey to moral corruption and internal strife. In "The Jugurthine War" he describes Rome's fight in Africa against the king of the Numidians from 111 to 105 bc, and provides a damning picture of the Roman aristocracy. Also included in this volume are the major surviving extracts from Sallust's now fragmentary "Histories", depicting Rome after the death of the dictator Sulla.

Fragments of the Histories. Letters to Caesar by Sallust Fragments of the Histories. Letters to Caesar, Hardback (June 2015)

The Histories of Sallust (86-35 BCE), while fragmentary, provide invaluable information about a crucial period of history from 78 to around 67 BCE. In this volume, John T. Ramsey has freshly edited the Histories and the two pseudo-Sallustian Letters to Caesar, completing the Loeb Classical Library edition of his works.

War with Catiline. The War with Jugurtha by Sallust War with Catiline. The War with Jugurtha, Hardback (November 2013)

Deal with the moral and political decline of Rome, one on the conspiracy of Catiline and the other on the war with Jugurtha.

Catiline's Conspiracy, the Jugurthine War, Histories by Sallust Catiline's Conspiracy, the Jugurthine War, Histories, Paperback (April 2010)

These three works exemplify the Roman historian Sallust's condemnation of the excesses of the late Republic. In the conspiracy of Catiline and the war against Jugurtha he sees moral and political corruption and the tragedy of civil strife. This new translation captures Sallust's distinctive style and considers his work as history and literature.

Histories: Volume 2 (Books III-V) by Sallust Histories: Volume 2 (Books III-V), Hardback (January 1994)

A commentary and translation of Sallust's "Histories", covering the years 78-67 BC, one of the least well documented, but eventful periods of the era. This edition reflects recent research on the period and fragments of the text discovered since the edition of Maurenbrecher (1891-93).
