    The Roman Republic was one of the most remarkable achievements in the history of civilization. After its founding in 509 BCE, the Romans refused to allow a single leader to seize control of the state and grab absolute power. The Roman commitment to cooperative government and peaceful transfers of power was unmatched in the history of the ancient world. But by the year 133 BCE, the republican system was unable to cope with the vast empire Rome now ruled.

    If you’re a fan on Roman history, or just a fan of Mike Duncan and his podcasts- you will not be disappointed. Well written and read, The Storm Before the Storm is a thought provoking look at a fascinating time in history (some might say made even more relevant by current events). Despite a thorough listening to The History of Rome podcast, I learned a lot and was thrilled to get new backstories and vantage points on some of Rome’s major (and minor) players. My older kids loved it as well, highly recommended.
