5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely Well Done 28 Aug 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Library Binding
I have reviewed other books by Mr. Nardo, the leading historian of ancient civilizations presently writing for students in this country. This volume like his others that I have read and at times used in my classes, is extremely thorough, well-researched, and skillfully written. He begins by giving the readers, who are for the most part uninitiated in the subject, an effective overview of how historians, past and present, have viewed and approached the subject of Rome's fall. Then he explores the long and torturous process by which the Roman Empire declined during the course of more then three centuries, focusing on numerous, often interrelated causes, including economic decay, poor leadership, changing social attitudes, religious upheaval, and of course, the barbarian invasions. This is by far the best non-scholarly book available on the subject and every high school history teacher who covers Rome should either make it required reading or recommend it for report-writing.
