History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire by Edward Gibbon Book Summary

The great work of Gibbon is indispensable to the student of history. The literature of Europe offers no substitute for The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. It has obtained undisputed possession, as rightful occupant, of the vast period which it comprehends. However some subjects, which it embraces, may have undergone more complete investigation, on the general view of the whole period, this history is the sole undisputed authority to which all defer, and from which few appeal to the original writers, or to more modern compilers.

History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire (Edward Gibbon) Book Reviews

An Essential Classic for Roots of Western Civilization"History of the Decline and Fall. . ." is an essential text for understanding the Roman civilization and its roots in Western Civilization! From a twentieth Century reader prospective, the writing suffers somewhat from obtuse language that is sometimes very hard, or impossible to understand, but the book is still worth the effort!.Score: 4/5

AwsomeBest Roman Empire book ever.Score: 5/5

The easiest to read volume of the seriesThis book covers the history of Rome, glossing over the period before Augustus, and then covering the succeeding emperors in fair detail through to Constantine. The reasons you might read this book would include: * it's a classic, so you can impress people at dinner parties (not really) * it's the basis for the understanding of Roman history for typical educated English speakers from the late 18th century through to the late 20th century (for good and ill) and interesting, for example, to consider in the light of what the US constitutional framers might have had on their minds. * Gibbon has axes to grind, and can be very entertaining when, for example, comparing the number of Christians killed by Romans to the number killed by other Christians. * It's more entertaining than more scholarly histories, although frequently comprises stupendously long paragraphs and Byzantine sentences..Score: 5/5

Epic 18th century historyThe first of Gibbon's six volumes is in short a joy for anyone with an appetite for Roman history. However, let it be known that this work is dense, aiming at a comprehensive picture of the decline and eventual collapse of the Roman Empire; not to be read on a mere whim. And yet Gibbon's style, though somewhat out of fashion, has a very real charm. Gibbon's skill is to reflect, to the reader, a dense and complex subject with breathtaking clarity and wit..Score: 5/5
