Senate of the Roman Republic: Addresses on the History of Roman Constitutionalism
Robert C. Byrd (au); Richard A. Baker (fr)
Hardcover (no d.j.)
On May 5, 1993, Sen. Robert C. Byrd initiated a series of 14 addresses in opposition to a proposed line-item-veto concept. During the following 5-1/2 months, he delivered each of these speeches -- packed with names, dates, and complex narratives -- entirely from memory and without recourse to notes. Sen. Byrd devised the equivalent of a 14-week univ. seminar on the constitutional history of separated and shared powers as shaped in the republic and empire of ancient Rome. Sen. Byrd described the development of ancient Rome, through its evolution to a republic with a strong and independent Senate and then into its decline and collapse as the Roman Senate willingly yielded hard-won powers to a succession of dictators and emperors. This volume contains those speeches. Illus.
