"Sallust, Gaius Sallustius Crispus (86-35 BCE), a Sabine from Amiternum, acted against Cicero and Milo as tribune in 52, joined Caesar after being expelled from the Senate in 50, was restored to the senate by Caesar and took part in his African campaign as praetor in 46, and was then appointed governor of New Africa (Numidia). Upon his return to Rome he narrowly escaped conviction for malfeasance in office, retired from public life, and took up historiography. Sallust's two extant monographs take as their theme the moral and political decline of Rome, one on the conspiracy of Catiline and the other on the war with Jugurtha. Although Sallust is decidedly unsubtle and partisan in analyzing people and events, his works are important and significantly influenced later historians, notably Tacitus. Taking Thucydides as his model but building on Roman stylistic and rhetorical traditions, Sallust achieved a distinctive style, concentrated and arresting; lively characterizations, especially in the speeches; and skill at using particular episodes to illustrate large general themes"--Publisher website.… (mere)

Pretty much a slanted, and not terribly accurate, view of the titular war and conspiracy. The translator does a good job of putting things in context, and alerting the reader to the fact that Sallust, a piece of work in and of himself, may not be giving you the whole story. The accounts are readable, but flawed. (Curiously, I read this right after the Alexiad, where the author was doing similar things.) ( )

This volume contains two different Essays, a biography of a king of Numidia, and a political polemic against a foe of Pompey's. The biography is valuable, covering an example of anti-Roman nationalism, and a good source for North Africa in the Roman era. The other essay is an example of the kind of effort a Roman attorney would put forth in the law courts, trying to gain a conviction. Both are interesting to the historian. ( )

With a few changes in names, the whole story of "The Jugurthine War" can perhaps be transplanted from 110 BC Rome to the 20th century, or any other period in history, when there are global/central super powers, local tyrants/warlords and puppet governments.

"The Conspiracy of Catiline" is a tale of political intrigue and class struggle instigated by lust-crazed individuals. It complements Cicero's account of the event in his orations "Against Cataline".

Sallust explains, from a rather cynical perspective, the cause and effect of historical events, and the motives of the individuals involved. He also makes interesting contrasts between political foes of the period: Gaius Marius and Sulla, the former an equestrian, known more for his military achievements than statesmanship, the latter a patrician who excels in both generalship and statesmanship, a forerunner of Julius Caesar, who in turn is contrasted with Cato the Younger, one generous and lenient and the other righteous and unrelenting.

Catilina and Jugurtha - different events, different persons, different works. So please don't combine all of them even if some publishers put the two between the same covers - because not all of them do!
