The Fall Of Rome(and the end of civilisation) by Bryan Ward Perkins 1st Edit 2005

£11.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

In The Fall of Rome, eminent historian Bryan Ward-Perkins argues that the "peaceful" theory of Rome's "transformation" is badly in error. Indeed, he sees the fall of Rome as a time of horror and dislocation that destroyed a great civilization, throwing the inhabitants of the West back to a standard of living typical of prehistoric times. Attacking contemporary theories with relish and making use of modern archaeological evidence, he looks at both the wider explanations for the disintegration of the Roman world and also the consequences for the lives of everyday Romans, who were caught in a world of economic collapse, marauding barbarians, and the rise of a new religious orthodoxy.
Up to date, combining a lively narrative with the latest research and thirty illustrations, the book reclaims the drama, the violence, and the tragedy of the fall of Rome.
A black cloth hardback with dust jacket. The jacket is in excellent condition with no discernible wear. It has not been clipped.
Boards and spine are also in similar condition.
Pages are fresh tight and intact. No inscriptions
