It is probably the greatest story in all history: how the people in a tiny village on the Tiber River took over the entire known world of its day and developed brilliant literature, buildings, armies, roads, and laws that we still talk about thousands of years later.
This great empire was strong and invincible at its height, yet it eventually fell. How was that possible? Did these great people become soft? Were the rulers too greedy? Were the tens of thousands of their slaves a poor economic foundation for long-term survival? Did the astounding depravity and public debauchery of some of their best-known emperors undermine the moral presence and force of Rome?
In careful detail, this book will let you understand the remarkable, little-known reasons behind the breathtaking rise of Rome. And also, exactly how and why this truly great civilization collapsed to the wonder and astonishment of all those looking on at the time.
