The parallels between present-day America and late imperial Rome are striking, from declining cultural values and increasing civic alienation to mounting administrative complexity and associated bureaucratic transaction costs. Like Rome, America has become a nation foundering on the quicksand of her erstwhile faith and fervor. The Eclipse of the American Century warns that unless America understands and appreciates her mortality and makes some profound and expeditious changes, the fate of Rome awaits her. From a decidedly conservative, traditional, Western culture perspective, Gene W. Heck examines the ways academia, journalism, and liberal politics are undermining, and thus transforming, the cultural core of American society. However, he posits that all hope is not lost. By carefully studying the economic lessons of the past, America can confront the daunting task of preparing for her future.
