You will need quite a bit of background information to follow this book. The author cites and follows many of the big and small events in the last decades of the Republic, expecting the reader to pick up on those immediately. A detailed and vivid image of popular politics in the late Republic is presented and readers with sufficient background knowledge will appreciate it a lot.

Raises many good points but often fails to follow-through their implications. Useful.
