The Rule of Empires
- Those Who Built Them Those Who Endured Them and Why They Always Fall
- By: Timothy H. Parsons
- Narrated by: Thomas Fawley
- Length: 25 hrs and 31 mins
In The Rule of Empires, Timothy Parsons gives a sweeping account of the evolution of empire from its origins in ancient Rome to its most recent twentieth-century embodiment. He explains what constitutes an empire and offers suggestions about what empires of the past can tell us about our own historical moment. Parsons uses imperial examples that stretch from ancient Rome, to Britain's "new" imperialism in Kenya, to the Third Reich to parse the features common to all empires, their evolutions and self-justifying myths, and the reasons for their inevitable decline.
