This new edition of Sallust, the first critical text for over thirty years, is based on a fresh study and collation of the manuscripts, as well as careful consideration of the indirect tradition. Besides the well-known Catiline and Jugurtha, the volume contains more than seventy of the longer or more interesting fragments of the Histories and also the spurious Epistulae ad Caesarem and Invectivae. These inclusions will prove extremely valuable to students and scholars alike. The works of Sallust, written in the latter half of the first century BC, are commonly studied not only by classicists and ancient historians, but also by students of Latin prose. This new edition should therefore prove a particularly welcome addition to the series of Oxford Classical Texts.

'as one reads through the opening of the new Oxford Classical Text of Sallust, it swiftly becomes clear that the editing of Rome's first great historian has been entrusted to the hands of a true professional' S.P. Oakley, Emmanuel College, Cambridge, The Classical Review, Vol. XLIII, No. 1, 1993
