Mr. Monte Pearson, a Burlington resident, visited some of our Latin classes today as part of our Foreign Language Week activities. Mr. Pearson is the author of a book called Perils of Empire.
The book is described as follows: Perils of Empire: The Roman Republic and the American Republic examines the similarities between the Roman Republic, which gained an empire and lost its freedoms, and the expansionist foreign policy of the American Republic since Teddy Roosevelt rode up San Juan Hill.
Mr. Pearson also has a blog related to his book where he posts updates and conversations related to the theme of his book. We would like to thank Mr. Pearson for spending the day with us at BHS and sharing his expertise!
