Books: Last Generation of the Roman Republic

Erich Gruen (1974), The Last Generation of the Roman Republic (Berkeley: University of California Press: 0520201531).

Annoyingly overargued. Make claims that Pompey's absentee government of Spain in the late 50s was not damned weird for the Roman Republic and you undermine your credibility on every single other page.
