Description de l’éditeur
From comparing the rise of Julius Caesar to that of George Washington, to the actions of Nero in comparison to Donald Trump. This book serves to present a survey of both Roman and American history, while demonstrating a continuity between the two socially, militarily, and politically. Did Catiline really intend to destroy the Roman Republic, or was he a victim of the wrathful Cicero? Is Donald Trump as insane as he is often portrayed to be, or is he on the wrong side of a media smear campaign; like Emperor Nero who has been immortalized as a monstrous, sexual deviant because of the media's inherent dislike of him? Is the "new" political theory of democratic socialism, popularized by Senator Bernie Sanders, actually just a continuation of a several millennia old idea of using federal funds to improve the life of, and appease the general populace?
