Into this dreadful state of affairs steps one of history's bravest reformers, Tiberius Gracchus. Along with his brother, Caius, these two will introduce, beginning in 133 B.C., a series of political and economic reforms which unleashes over a hundred years of massive civil unrest and devastating civil war. The chaos is finally brought to an end with the accession to power of Octavian in 30 B.C., and with him comes an Imperial tyranny that spells the end of an ancient form of government known as the Roman Republic. Enjoy Cyril Robinson's superbly written historical masterpiece, a crowning achievement by the greatest historian of the 20th century.

What did you love best about A History of the Roman Republic, Volume 2?
As part of my catching-up on history, I decided to listen to books on ... well.. history.
I have long been wanting to read/listen to the classic Decline and Fall books, but thought I better start with something closer to the beginning - which I am glad that I did.
This book is a great introduction to the formation of the Roman Republic and proved a very interesting listen. At some points it required a rewind - as the names of people and places can become slightly overwhelming in an audio format, but that was hardly a problem.
Worth the listen.

I truly enjoy an audio tour of history. However, this book was incredibly boring and not engaging. To make matters worse, the narration was just horrible. By far the worst I've listened to in the past 12 months. Still searching for an engaging telling of the rise and fall of Rome.
