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.

An on-point and scholarly reevaluation of the place of migration in European history. The emphasis on Slavic political development is a new twist for Western readers. I have only one complaint: why the Gibbon-like antipathy for the Roman Empire in the East?

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.
