Reviews

Like a late Roman emperor, Heather is determined to impose order on a fabric that is always threatening to fragment and collapse into confusion; unlike most late Roman emperors, he succeeds triumphantly. * The Times of London *
A rich and dramatic synthesis of the latest research on Gibbon's old story.... The drama of Mr. Heather's book lies not just in the world-changing story he has to tell, but in his behind-the-scenes view of how historians work. Like a master detective, Mr. Heather employs the most various techniques * everything from pollen sampling to archaeology to literary criticism *
Gibbon's 'awful revolution' * the decline and fall of the Roman Empire in the West *
To a period that has often appeared as impenetrable as it is momentous, Peter Heather brings a rare combination of scholarship and flair for narrative. With this book, a powerful searchlight has been shone upon the shadow-dimmed end of Rome's western empire. * Tom Holland, author of Rubicon: The Last Years of the Roman Republic *
Masterful, lucid.... Always rewarding. * ForeWord Magazine *
