From Our Editors

In the years following the assassination of Caesar, Sallust set down details of current events in Rome, writing with a strong sense of posterity. He captured the spirit and flavour of life in the Empire, and his work has been invaluable to scholars of classical civilization. This edition of his work includes both The Jugurthine War and The Conspiracy of Catiline, both masterpieces of dramatic narrative.
