Additional information on "Ancient Rome: How It Affects You Today, 2nd Edition" by Richard J. Maybury
Ancient Rome by Richard J. Maybury discusses what happens when higher law principles and a free market economy are ignored.
Mr. Maybury uses historical events to explain current events, including the wars in the former Soviet Empire, and the legal and economic problems of America today. Is your government making the same choices that led to the fall of Ancient Rome? Will history repeat?
Why is ancient history important to us today?
Does America have the Roman Disease? Is there a cure? Or will America repeat the mistakes of Ancient Rome and collapse into poverty, decay, ruin and war?
Using the epistolary style of writing (using letters to tell a story), Mr. Maybury plays the part of an economist (Uncle Eric) writing a series of letters to his niece or nephew (Chris). Using stories and examples, Mr. Maybury gives interesting and clear explanations of topics that are generally thought to be too difficult for anyone but experts.
Mr. Maybury warns, "beware of anyone who tells you a topic is above you or better left to experts. Many people are twice as smart as they think they are, but they've been intimidated into believing some topics are above them. You can understand almost anything if it is explained well."
