Sallust (86-35 BC) was a historian of major importance, writing at the time of the late Roman Republic. This is the first full-length commentary and English translation of one of his major works, the Histories, covering the years 78-67 BC--one of the most poorly documented periods of the era. The translation is based on a fresh examination of the text and also includes newly-discovered material with a bearing on the interpretation of the text.
