"Mike Duncan turns his talent for clear and engagingexposition to an underappreciated period of Roman history: the last days of theRepublic, before the rise of Caesar and the agonizing civil wars that yieldedthe Roman Empire. Duncan's readable and witty style, and his eye for thetelling detail and memorable anecdote, carry the reader through a grippingnarrative."-Peter Adamson, professor of philosophy, LMU Munich, and host of History of Philosophy
