Collapse and Recovery of the Roman Empire (Routledge Key Guides) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the third century A.D., the Roman Empire was on the brink of collapse. Yet miraculously the Empire recovered and continued, in the west, for another two hundred years, in the east, for far longer. <BR> In "The Collapse and Recovery of the Roman Empire," esteemed classical historian Michael Grant examines this puzzling chapter in Western history. Although this period of Roman history is often discussed, there are no adequate discussions to explain why the Empire did not disintegrate--all indications seemed to lead to its demise. In his clear, concise style, Grant analyzes the collapse through the succession of emperors, the impact of the Germans and the Persians and sheds new light on the reasons for the recovery of the Empire by revealing the emergence of strong emperors, the reconstitution of the army, new developments in finance and coinage, as well as the impact of state religion. <BR> Lively and accessible, "The Collapse and Recovery of the Roman Empire" offers a fresh look at the power and endurance of the Roman Empire.
