What is one of the best ways to successfully predict the future? Winston Churchill believed that the further back you look, the further forward you are likely to be able to see. This intriguing book is testimony to this idea. It looks back two thousand years to the Roman Empire to help us to see into our own future.

Pugnare tells the story of a people like us in their capacity for creativity and self-destruction, and in the wisdom and foolishness of those whom they chose to govern them.

It tells the story of their success, a prosperity that the world had never seen before. And it tells the story of their failure, the one thousand five hundred year long Great Stagnation that followed the self-induced collapse of their world.

“Intelligent and real”

A rare kind of book which breathes an electric modern reality into a topic area commonly viewed only through the lenses of archaeology or literature. It is of course entertaining to leaf through a classical account... More

“Enlightening”

I’ve read lots of Roman history, including Gibbon’s Decline and Fall but none give a better sense of how a mighty empire can come apart at the seams. Maher brings his business acumen to bear on the financial conduct... More
