The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Paperback / softback Book

The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire Paperback / softback

Edited by David Womersley

Part of the The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire series

Paperback / softback

Description

Edward Gibbon's Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire compresses thirteen turbulent centuries into an epic narrative shot through with insight, irony and incisive character analysis.

Sceptical about Christianity, sympathetic to the barbarian invaders and the Byzantine Empire, constantly aware of how political leaders often achieve the exact opposite of what they intend, Gibbon was both alert to the broad pattern of events and significant revealing details.
