From the Gracchi to Nero: A History of Rome 133 BC to AD 68
From the Gracchi to Nero is an outstanding history of the Roman world from 133 BC to 68 AD. Fifty years since publication it is widely hailed as the classic survey of the period, going through many revised and updated editions until H.H. Scullardís death. It explores the decline and fall of the Roman Republic and the establishment of the Pax Romana under the early Principate. In superbly clear style, Scullard brings vividly to life the Gracchiís attempts at reform, the rise and fall of Marius and Sulla, Pompey and Caesar, society and culture in the late Roman Republic, the Augustan Principate, Tiberius and Gaius, Claudius and Nero, and economic and social life in the early Empire.

A magisterial account of this turbulent time in Roman History. The notes keep getting better and better as the editions keep being revised. If you need to quote a heavyweight, Scullard is your man. Read full review
Review: From the Gracchi to Nero: A History of Rome from 133 BC to AD 68User Review - Sean Garrett - Goodreads
A quick overview of the Julio-Claudian Emperors and how they came about, it fails in its inability to convey enough detail; a feat which would defeat the purpose of a quick overview. For anyone who is interested in a cursory study of Roman history. Read full review
