About the Author

James F. Morgan lived for some years in Libya, site of the showcase cities of Leptis Magna, Oea, and Sabratha. He was able to travel throughout the Mediterranean region and found himself fascinated with the lands of the old Roman Empire. The land he saw in Libya was a desert wasteland, and yet his associates told him repeatedly that this land was once the breadbasket of the Roman Empire. How, he asked, could this weed strewn desert have nourished the great Roman Empire? No one could answer him. Years later he began reading, studying, and then writing not only about Libya, but of the great Roman Empire. . . its glory years, its long decline, and the division into two empires. It took several decades before he had answered his many questions about Libya, about the Romans, and along the way, learned why the Western Empire failed and the Eastern Empire endured for a thousand more years. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
