How Rome Fell
Death of A SuperpowerAudiobook CD - 2010
Describes the forces that ultimately destroyed the Roman Empire, challenging the traditional assumption that Rome was sacked by ultimately irrepressible foreign armies. Asserts that Rome's foes in the death throes of empire weren't any more formidable than those at its peak, but that the cutthroat nature of its political system fractured and diverted forces better spent maintaining the integrity of provincial borders - it was civil war and paranoia that destroyed the empire from within. Some descriptions of violence. 2009.
