About this title:
Gordon’s criticisms of war, empire, and political corruption in Cato’s Letters (1720-23) are quite well known. Less well known are the very similar and much more extensive criticisms which he included as prefaces to his translations of the Roman historians Tacitus and Sallust which he wrote subsequently (1728 and 1744 respectively). This edition of his “Discourses” republishes them together for the first time.
