History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire

Forside
Simon and Schuster, 18. jan. 2013 - 398 sider
Gibbon offers an explanation for why the Roman Empire fell, a task made difficult by a lack of comprehensive written sources, though he was not the only historian to tackle the subject. Most of his ideas are directly taken from what few relevant records were available: those of the Roman moralists of the 4th and 5th centuries.

Gibbon's third volume of The Decline and Fall seems to stray from the purpose stated in volume one. I think he just got carried away by the sweep of history. The melodious style and easy learning are still present but I was suffering from Gibbon fatigue by the third volume and we were off course. Les hele vurderingen
