Clear and concise history of the end of the Roman Republic. Any student of history will appreciate how corrupt the Roman Empire was before and after the fall of the republic. Murder was an accepted tool of political intrigue in this period and the Roman aristocracy rarely hesitated in destroying opponents, real and imagined. A great introduction to the start of the Roman Empire
