Thomas Madden – SIGNED

Original price was: $89.95.Current price is: $79.95.

Many have compared the modern United States with the end of the Roman Empire, at least the western portion, as an attempt to project America’s fall. As Professor Madden points out, “Anyone with even a passing acquaintance with the history of the late Roman Empire knows that it bears almost no similarities with the modern United States.” It is rather to the young Roman Republic to which Professor Madden makes a comparison.

Many have compared the modern United States with the end of the Roman Empire, at least the western portion, as an attempt to project America’s fall. As Professor Madden points out, “Anyone with even a passing acquaintance with the history of the late Roman Empire knows that it bears almost no similarities with the modern United States.” It is rather to the young Roman Republic to which Professor Madden makes a comparison. He sees “similarities in culture, self-image, national character, and a host of other factors” as striking and worth examining.

As an author and historical consultant, he appears in such venues as The New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, and The History Channel.
