Through thoughtful narrative, supported by fully documented quotes, this title begins with A Brief History of Romes Fall and then examines these questions: Did the Barbarian Invasions Cause Romes Fall? Did Internal Disunities Fatally Weaken Rome? Did Economic and Military Factors Destroy Rome ? Which Aspects of Rome Survived to Become Its Legacy?
