Reviews - What do our customers think?
Who to Read about The Decline of Rome  Feb 11, 2002
If you want a pleasant fantasy about Rome's decline, influenced by Tacitus's writings from another period entirely, read Gibbon. If you want to read a standard version that rehashes much of the myth of decline and fall, read Grant. If you want to get a handle on the the conditions of the later Roman Empire, read Ramsay MacMullen.
A Marxist view?  May 12, 1998
This is the first book I have read on this subject, so I am unable to really critize this book. Macmullen seems to take a marxist/hegelian view of historical conflicts, arguing that the fall of the empire is due to economic reason, namely privatization, liberalism and the ensuing conflict between the "Haves" (the rich, or potentiores or possessores or potentes in latin) and the "have-nots", the poor. He concludes by saying that we should learn from history and the fate of private enterprise. I do not know if Macmullen is a marxist, but I was surprized that he ignored the theory I was familiar with, that the decline of Rome came for the breakdown of moral values such as family values and sexual morals. I had also heard about the theories concerning the role of military chaos.
