    Peter Heather is tops!

    I read Heather's earlier volume on the Fall of the Roman Empire, and that made this a must-read. He's an estimable historian more than capable of untangling the confused threads of this complicated period of devolution, synthesis and reintegration.

    Excellent historical book

    Mr. Heather wrote an excellent historical version of Empires and Barbarians. His clear style of writing allowed me to understand subject matter extremely well. He explains everything in detail and you can tell that the book was well researched. The book covers the Roman Empire, along with the Goths, Hans, etc, and it also goes into the fall of Roman Empire. There are also interesting stories based on actual accounts of the folks that lived during the period.

    So, if you want to get educated on the ancient empires and the Barbarians, then this is the book for you. Highly recommend.
