New Book Examines Parallels Between Rome and America, Cautioning...

Author Walter Signorelli's comprehensive historical and sociopolitical commentary "Rome and America: The Great Republics: What the Fall of the Roman Republic Portends for the United States" (published by Archway Press) investigates the political, social, economic and moral similarities between Rome and the United States, offering a cautionary tale for avoiding Rome's fate.

Signorelli examines the parallels between how Rome and America were founded, grew and prospered. He scrutinizes their strengths and weaknesses, the environments from which they emerged, the similarities of their constitutional governments, their military campaigns and the legacy of Roman law in America. In his book, Signorelli argues that partisan conflicts in Rome between different factions caused their republic's disintegration just as conflicts between Democrats and Republicans have divided America and are threatening to fracture the nation.

"As Americans, we have to be on guard against the kind of extreme political partisanship that destroyed the Roman republic," Signorelli states. "We must recognize that political attacks can escalate to violent conflict with drastic consequences. In periods of chaos, it is not inconceivable that people will choose security over liberty and accept an autocratic government, either from the right or the left."
