Catiline's Conspiracy, The Jugurthine War, Histories

Translated by William W. Batstone

Oxford World's Classics

  • The Roman historian Sallust's accounts of Catiline's conspiracy, the Jugurthine War, and his fragmentary Histories together chart the decline of the late republic, and his influence extended throughout antiquity.
  • William W. Batstone's new translation captures the energy and severity of Sallust's Latin style in an accessible English idiom.
  • A full introduction sets Sallust and his works in their turbulent historical context, and considers their achievements as both history and literature.
  • Shorter, individual introductions and chronologies to each of the three works chart the sequence of events.
  • Comprehensive notes, glossary, and index.
  • Up-to-date bibliography and three maps covering the ancient Mediterranean, Italy, and Africa.
