Political Scientist Michael Parenti is a tireless activist-academic who has taught at many colleges and universities inside and outside the United States. He is a celebrated lecturer whose humour and anecdotes have delighted audiences across the world, in person and via broadcast.

Hundreds of his articles have appeared in scholarly journals, political periodicals, and popular magazines and newspapers. Michael Parenti is author of more than 20 books on the power of media, political elites, the wealthy, and US imperialism. His writings have been translated into 17 languages and include:

  • Profit Pathologies and Other Indecencies
  • The Face of Imperialism, and
  • To Kill a Nation, The Attack on Yugoslavia

His 2003 history The Assassination of Julius Caesar: A People’s History of Ancient Rome received a nomination for the Pulitzer Prize. Kirkus Reviews calls it “savagely entertaining ... history at its most provocative.”

Way back in 2003, the Parkland Institute in cooperation with the University of Alberta Students’ Union Revolutionary Speakers Series hosted Dr. Michael Parenti at the Myer Horowitz Theatre. He joined me at CJSR studios for conversation about:

  • The reasons why establishment historians have hidden the full story of Julius Caesar for more than 2000 years
  • Who the Roman population really were, regardless of the slurs cast by elite historians
  • The pro-democracy struggle of ancient Romans against the elitists who assassinated Caesar and those who provided ideological cover for it such as Cicero and Cato, and
  • The striking parallels between the political crisis of ancient Rome and the modern United States
