Most widely held works by Ronald Syme
The Roman revolution by Ronald Syme( Book )

181 editions published between 1939 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 2,595 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Roman Revolution is a profound and unconventional treatment of a great theme - the fall of the Republic and the decline of freedom in Rome between 60 BC and AD 14, and the rise to power of the greatest of the Roman Emperors, Augustus. The transformation of state and society, the violent transference of power and property, and the establishment of Augustus' rule are presented in an unconventional narrative, which quotes from ancient evidence, refers seldomly to modernauthorities, and states controversial opinions quite openly. The result is a book which is both fresh and compelling
Sallust by Ronald Syme( Book )

56 editions published between 1964 and 2009 in 8 languages and held by 1,313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With this classic book, Sir Ronald Syme became the first twentieth-century scholar to place Sallust - whom Tacitus called the most brilliant Roman historian - in his social, political, and literary context. Previous scholars treated Sallust as a mere political hack or pamphleteer, but Syme's text makes important connections between the politics of the Republic and Sallust's literary achievement, revealing a historian unbiased by partisanship. In a new foreword, Ronald Mellor delivers one of the most thorough biographical essays of Sir Ronald Syme in English. He places Sallust in the context of Syme's other works and details the progression of Sallustian studies since and as a result of Syme's work."--Jacket
