Republican Rome by H. L. Havell.
Even though this book was written in 1914, it does not read like a ‘stodgy’ history book. It is very easy to read, is not biased to any line of history and is a very good book for those who are interested in the early Roman Republic. Havell is very good at bringing out a little character in his historical figures instead of just reciting fact, figures and their historical ‘claim to fame’. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to read up on the history of Rome.
