About this Item

Shows extensive, if fairly neat UNDERLINING, HI-LIGHTING & MARGINALIA to page 125. Else, Near Fine in Wraps: shows only a hint of wear to extremities and the mildest rubbing. The binding shows barely discernible lean, while remaining perfectly secure. Clearly this is a flawed copy, but one which remains structurally sound and tightly bound: in overall appearance, close to 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. xv, 235 pages. Second Edition, Revised & Enlarged [1990]; Second Printing Thus. Trade Paperback. Second Edition, Revised & Enlarged [1990]; Second Printing Thus. Bookseller Inventory # 46549

About this title

Synopsis:

The fall of the western Roman empire is regarded as one of the most significant transformations throughout the whole of human history. A hundred years before it happened, Rome was an immense power, defended by an all-conquering army. But the power and the army vanished. Michael Grant, who has produced more than two-dozen popular histories of the ancient world, here identifies and discusses thirteen defects of internal conflict he sees as being responsible for the fall of the Roman empire. These flaws within their society set Roman against Roman, dividing the nation and thereby eviscerating its ability to resist invasion.

He has held many academic posts including those of Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge; Professor of Humanity at Edinburgh University; Vice Chancellor of The Queen's University, Belfast and Vice Chancellor of the University of Khartoum.
