Mass Humanities and Harvard Book Store welcome MIKE DUNCAN — creator of the award-winning podcast "The History of Rome" — for a discussion of his latest book, "The Storm Before the Storm: The Beginning of the End of the Roman Republic." 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.
