The Life and Legacy of Cato

Email a Friend

Rob Goodman and Jimmy Soni tell the history of Marcus Porcius Cato, the last man standing when Rome’s Republic fell to tyranny. Their biography, Rome’s Last Citizen: The Life and Legacy of Cato, Mortal Enemy of Caesar, resonates deeply with our own turbulent times. Cato grappled with terrorists, a debt crisis, endemic political corruption, and a huge gulf between the elites and those they governed.
