Course: Is America Rome? A History of the Roman Empire in the West (OSH-ROMEWST)

A study of the Roman Empire in the West from 509 BCE until its fall in 476 CE scarcely requires justification. The Roman achievements in the realms of politics, economics, diplomacy and the role of women remain remarkable, even after 2,000. But its decline and fall provide a cautionary tale for the U.S. today. We will be examining the conclusions of 9, mostly recent scholars, about the Roman Empire with an eye to comparing Rome to the U.S. today. Is America Rome?
