    DescriptionFrom 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. Scullard's 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 Gracchi's 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.

    Review quote
    'Many things made and make From the Gracchi to Nero a great book: The lengthy chronological table in the front is ideal for study. Scullard's presentation is balanced and unprepossessing. The work breathes an air of confident, competent scholarship, and the extensive notes give a veritable snapshot of a great generation of English scholarship on Rome ...' - John Noel Dillon, University of Exeter, Bryn Mawr Classical Review Praise for the previous edition: 'Still the best introduction to Roman history.' - Miriam Griffin, University of Oxford 'The fundamental modern work of reference for teachers, sixth-formers and university students still ... the best and most reliable modern account of the period.' - Tim Cornell, University of Manchester 'The most balanced, succinct account of the two most turbulent and written-about centuries of Roman history - the single best introduction to that period for students.' - G.H.R. Horsley, University of New England
