Republican Rome Brought to Light,
This review is from: Chronicle of the Roman Republic: The Rulers of Ancient Rome from Romulus to Augustus (Chronicles) (Hardcover)
This is an excellent addition to any person's library that is interested in Roman history. It starts with the myth of Romulus and Remus and ends with the reign of Augustus.
The section of each personality is written in a balanced, objective view and there are some nice supporting paragraphs with notes on subjects such as Hannibal, to the correct way to fit a toga.
My only problem with this book is that the section on Caesar seems to have lost all objectivity and Matyszak goes out of his way to discredit and personally blame Caesar for all the faults of the late Republic.
