The fate of rome: climate, disease, and the end of an empire (the princeton history of the ancient world, 2), Kyle Harper : Books: Books : The Fate of Rome is the first book to examine the catastrophic theatrical role that climate change and infectious diseases played in the collapse of Rome's power―a story of nature's triumph over human ambition. The Fate of Rome is a sweeping account of how one of history's greatest civilizations encountered and endured, yet ultimately succumbed to, the cumulative burden of nature's violence. Interweaving a grand historical narrative with cutting-edge climate science and genetic discoveries, Kyle Harper traces how the fate of Rome was decided not just by emperors, soldiers, and barbarians but also by volcanic eruptions, solar cycles, climate instability, and annihilative viruses and bacteria.

How annihilative viruses, pandemics, and other natural catastrophes swept through the far-flung Roman Empire and helped to bring down one of the mightiest civilizations of the ancient worldHere is the monumental retelling of one of the most consequential chapters of human history: the fall of the Roman Empire.

This book is essential for all lovers of Roman History. It overlays the history with the events of epidemic diseases and climate change. In so doing, you will find what C. S. Lewis calls ‘Transposition’: the flooding of a depress medium and the raising of it to a new significance by incorporation into a higher medium. The book also reveals a mastery of language, and lays out the events in a captivating manner. A great history book all around.
