Ancient Roman Text Offers Tips On Winning Elections



Robert Siegel talks with Classics professor Philip Freeman about his translation of the book, "How to Win an Election: An Ancient Guide for Modern Politicians." The book was written by the brother of Marcus Cicero, for when Marcus ran for office in Rome in 64 B.C. But the ancient Roman guide for campaigning still holds lessons for today's elections.

The article describing running for office in 64 BC for Marcus Cicero is the same process in campaigning for the high office today. The letter of advise for Cicero to speak in the forum to the people demonstrates that some things over time do not change.
