Good new scholarship
, March 16, 2012
This review is from: The History of Rome in Three Volumes by Livy (Unexpurgated Edition) (Halcyon Classics) (Kindle Edition)
This book is good so far . Interesting and shows lots of parallels between the fall of the Roman Empire and the fall of our own American Empire. We are repeating some of the same mistakes, ei. Overtaxation, unsupportable foreign wars caused and started for egotistical reasons with no treasure gained but much lost or used up solely to aggrandize certain leaders egos, squandering of national mojo on unimportant pursuits while leaving pressing issues unaddressed. Hopefully the US and American spirit will have another surge but, all to often history does repeat itself. Good book if you want to most update take on the subject backed by apparently solid scholarship. Yeah.
