Sallust: The Conspiracy Of Catiline And The War Of Jugurtha is a work of Roman History, written by one of Julius Caesar’s lieutenants during his retirement (the eponymous Caius Sallustius Cripus) and translated by my colleague Quintus Curtius.

No forgiveness – only demands of continued prostration. And by prostrating himself, by offering apology, the European confirms his guilt. Thus he justifies – thus he demands that genocide be committed upon him in return.
