9781942880011: A Brief History of Liberty: The Birth and Death of Democracy in Ancient Greece and Rome

This work traces the course of Liberty from her emergence in ancient Athens to her "death" at the hands of Julius Caesar and his successors in the early Roman Empire. Greece's fall from pre-eminence due to conquest by first Alexander and then Rome anticipated the rise and fall of Greece's conquerors. The direct role of Liberty in the waxing and waning of these great cultures is treated in great detail as both an historical lesson and as a warning for our own times.
