Collapse and Recovery of the Roman Empire Summary

Collapse and Recovery of the Roman Empire by Michael Grant

Collapse and Recovery of the Roman Empire presents a study of third century Rome, which is lavishly illustrated and a lucid read, typical of Michael Grant's inimitable style.
In Collapse and Recovery of the Roman Empire, Michael Grant asserts that the fact that the Roman empire of the third century AD did not collapse is one of the miracles of history. He argues that at that time the empire seemed ripe for disintegration and expresses amazement that it continued, in the west, for another two hundred years, and in the east, for far longer.

Michael Grant examines the reasons for collapse, including analyses of the succession of emperors, the Germans and the Persians and also, the reasons for its remarkable recovery, including discussions of strong emperors, a reconstituted army, finance and coinage and state religion.

Collapse and Recovery of the Roman Empire Reviews

'A good read, a good introduction and a useful book for anyone even slightly hesitant in their later Roman history.' - JACT Review

'Grants gift has been to make the basic trends of classical civilization accessible to general readers while maintaining first-rate standards of scholarship.' - Booklist Chicago
