Sallust's two extant monographs take as their theme the moral and political decline of Rome, one on the conspiracy of Catiline and the other on the war with Jugurtha. Although Sallust is decidedly unsubtle and partisan in analyzing people and events, his works are important and significantly influenced later historians, notably Tacitus.

This new and original translation of Sallust's "Conspiracy of Catiline" and "War of Jugurtha" uses a fresh, modern English idiom that preserves the flavor of the historian's famous epigrammatic style. Fully outfitted for comprehension and efficient referencing, this special edition contains the following features: 1. Almost 300 detailed, scholarly footnotes 2. Extended introduction describing the political and military systems of the Roman republic 3. Maps, diagrams, and photographs 4. Topical organization charts 5. Chronological tables 6. Textual commentary 7. Detailed index Considered the first of the great Roman historians, Sallust has been read for centuries for his penetrating character studies, timeless moral insights, and matchless rhetoric. His profiles of flawed men led inexorably to ruin by excessive ambition or character defects resonate with us today more powerfully than ever. Intrigue...murder...the lust for power...and the fatal hubris that leads men to their dooms. These are some of the historian's gripping themes. Deeply concerned with the moral decay and corruption he saw around him, Sallust's pragmatic views of historical forces, personalities, and the psychology of power were aided by his own direct participation in the highest levels of Roman politics. "The Conspiracy of Catiline" tells the dramatic story of renegade senator Lucius Catiline's attempt to seize power in Rome during the waning days of the republic. "The War of Jugurtha" recounts the rise and ultimate destruction of the headstrong Numidian king Jugurtha, who waged an insurgent war against Rome from 112 to 106 B.C. And as the fates of men play themselves out on the stage of history, strength of character and the will of Fortune will be the ultimate arbiters of human destiny.

'the glory of wealth and physical beauty is fluid and fragile; but virtue is held brilliant and eternal' The Roman historian Sallust lived through troubled times. He deplored the moral and political decline of the Republic, and in his two monographs he set out to exemplify the reasons for the years of civil strife. Catiline's Conspiracy is an account of the rebellion against the state led by the disaffected Catiline. For Sallust it was 'especially memorable because of the unprecedented nature of the crime and the danger it caused'. Rome's fight against the king of Numidia in The Jugurthine War is a graphic depiction of power struggles in Rome and brutal battles in Africa that eventually resulted in the capture of Jugurtha. Sallust's abrupt and distinctive style is the perfect vehicle for his moral urgency, bitter condemnation, and satirical cynicism. This new translation, which also includes Sallust's fragmentary Histories, captures his effects in an accessible English idiom, and provides a comprehensive introduction to his work as history and literature.
