The Two Great Republics: Rome and the United States
Publisher: Good Press
The book aims to compare conditions recorded in Roman history to those present in America in order to offer a cautionary tale. The author does not intend to write a conventional textbook or an academic essay on historical events, but rather to compare events in the two republics. The political history of the Roman Republic was characterized by a continuous struggle between radicals and conservatives, and this is reflected in the political and economic controversies of today in the U.S. Though the book is written more than a century ago, some of the conclusions and circumstances that are examined, uncannily reflect the current political landscape in the U.S.
