History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire

Simon and Schuster, 18. jan. 2013 - 433 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.
