The Rome We Have Lost

John Pemble

  • Combines cultural, intellectual and political history to show how Rome shaped Western understanding of what it meant to be modern and what it meant to be European.
  • Traces the transformation of the city from Old Rome, a cosmpolis enshrined in myth and legend, to New Rome, a national capital encumbered with 'heritage'.
  • An original perspective on the current crisis of Europe.
