The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire (mini-review)

Remembering that life goes on despite the Commodus’s and Caligula’s puts Trump’s kakistocracy into perspective.

Audible has become one of my favorite sources of entertainment in 2017. I recently finished The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire and I couldn’t be more delighted. Professor Leo Damrosch narrates a great lecture series about Gibbon’s seminal work, and the Roman Empire itself. I highly recommend this audiobook to history buffs or anyone dismayed by current events. Remembering that life goes on despite the Commodus’s and Caligula’s puts Trump’s kakistocracy into perspective.
