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.

'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.

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1840 edition. Excerpt: ... Morari iter. Understand solet, iter being the accusative depending on morari. 7. Ob rem corruptam. "For their mismanagement."--Criminan. "Alleged." The primitive meaning of crimen is a charge, or accusation.--Conturbare rem. "They threw the whole matter into confusion," i. e. they maintained that the whole agreement was null and void. 8. Graeci. The Cyreneans, as being a Greek colony.--Optionem Carthaginiensium faciunt. "Give the Carthaginians their choice.."--Vel Mi. Understand ut, which is expressed in some editions. 9. Aras consecravere. Consult Geographical Index, under the article Philendn arae. 1. Ordines habere. "To keep their ranks."--Imperium ob-gJJ servare. "To obey orders."--Alia mililaria facere. "To perform other military duties.." 2. Proxumos. "The intimate friends," i. e. the confidants and favourites.--Ad studium sui. "To favour his views."--Quis. For quibus. 3. Facilius proniusque. "The more easy to be effected, and the more agreeable to the inclinations of Bocchus." It is the same as if Sallust had said, facilius facta propter Bocchi prcmam ad bellum suscipiendum voluntatem. Pig. 53 Opportunistumam. "Most advantageous." Promising to bo productive of the most important aid. 5. Bocchi. Many of the old editions read Boceho, in the dative, making Bocchus to have been Jugurtha's son-in-law. The Abbe Brotier, relying upon this reading and some of Sylla's medals, proposes to substitute, in Plutarch's life of Marius, where mention is made of the Moorish king, the term son-in-law (ya//#ps), for fatherin-law (irci'fltpdj). But M. Vauvilliers more judiciously contends, from six manuscripts of Sallust, and in conformity...

Gaius Sallustius Crispus, usually anglicised as Sallust (/ˈs�ləst/; 86 - c. 35 BC), was a Roman historian, politician, and novus homo from an Italian plebeian family. Sallust was born at Amiternum in the country of the Sabines and was a popularis, an opponent of the old Roman aristocracy, throughout his career, and later a partisan of Julius Caesar. Sallust is the earliest known Roman historian with surviving works to his name, of which Catiline's War (about the conspiracy in 63 BC of L. Sergius Catilina), The Jugurthine War (about Rome's war against the Numidians from 111 to 105 BC), and the Histories (of which only fragments survive) are still extant. Sallust was primarily influenced by the Greek historian Thucydides and amassed great (and ill-gotten) wealth from his governorship of Africa.

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.
