Review

Rating: 6

“I am led to narrate these details for no other reason than to make clear to everyone what type of men the leaders of Romer were at that time, that they worked with their own hands, led self-disciplined lives, did not complain about honourable poverty, and, far from pursuing positions of royal power, actually refused them when offered.” – Dionysius of Halicarnassus, Roman Antiquities. Starting with the destruction of the Gracchi and the Social War, this book covers one of the most tumultuous and bloody periods in Roman history. Somewhat broad in scope, though engagingly written.
