The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire

Eight volumes tracing Western civilisation from the height of the Roman Empire to the fall of Byzantium; perhaps the greatest and one of the most influential history books in the English language, by an author who considered history 'little more than the register of the crimes, follies, and misfortunes of mankind'. Written with wit and irony in stylish prose, peppered with salacious footnotes, and brimming with relevance to our own age of bread and circuses. The complete text of the 1910 Everyman edition; edited and introduced by Betty Radice, illustrated throughout, each volume indexed.
