Straight history, not much insight. Interesting, but I skimmed the middle a bit. Read in kindle reader, so not a great reading experience. Skimmed.

A highly readable account of an under-examined but fascinating period of ancient Roman history. Everyone knows about Caesar and Augustus; this book makes clear why the Gracchi brothers, Marius and Sulla are just as noteworthy. If all our school history books has been this good, I'm certain that I would have paid proper attention then. Also: go and listen to the author's History of Rome podcast series - it's superb.

Make Rome Great Again? The book highlights some of the disturbing parallels to today's political environment without being heavy handed. We've been warned. Let's hope we learn from history.

A well crafted history of perhaps the most relevant period of Roman history to modern day America: the period that proceeded and precipitated the fall of the Republic. A natural reading book, assuming that you like Mr. Duncan's somewhat informal style. When politics become a blood-sport, democracy is doomed.
