Hats off to recent CMCI PhD graduate Dr Jonathan Theodore, who has successfully turned his doctoral thesis into a book, now out with Palgrave Macmillan.
His thesis, supervised by Professor Richard Howells, was about representations of the decline and fall of the Roman Empire –with a sweep that included both Gibbon and “Gladiator”. It is now revised and published as: The Modern Cultural Myth of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire (Palgrave Studies in the History of the Media, 2017).
Jonathan is currently working on a further book project about the future of the EU (again for Palgrave), and then a more mainstream book of macro history for the general reader. For more on his decline book, go to: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Cultural-Decline-Palgrave-Studies-History/dp/1137569964
