This is a very good overview of Rome in the first half of the first century BC, organized by topic (religion, politics, etc.) rather than chronologically. The footnotes are especially helpful, with pointers to books covering the topics this one only touches on.

Required reading for anyone studying this period. In addition the book demonstrates that the Judeo-Christian model of religious belief and sentiment is not the only one.

A surprisingly easy read for a text book. Packs a lot into it's 116 pages.
Saul Dunning
A must read for anyone with an academic interest in this era ...
Good overview of the period, if a bit polemic in parts.
Good, solid, if a teeny bit dated intro.
