As Thomas Burns shows in this magisterial study, Roman policy toward the barbarians was evolutionary rather than revolutionary, even though crisis upon crisis befell Rome during this period - the loss of Emperor Valens and his army at Adrianople in 378, the massive barbarian crossings of the Rhine at the end of 406, and Alaric's "sack" of Rome in 410. Summary, et. Barbarians serving in the Roman army, like all other Roman soldiers, faced difficult choices as political events buffeted their leaders and threatened their livelihoods.

Thomas Burns' BARBARIANS WITHIN THE GATES OF ROME manages something quite difficult. It is a very readable book that manages to be scholarly but still quite enjoyable. Anybody who is interested in this era in western civilization would enjoy this book. The usual view of the decline of Rome-- that it fell for some sort of "moral" reason --is very inacurate and this book presents the real truth of this pivotal era in a very entertaining manner. Burns is the rare academic whose writing is as lucid as it is learned, and this book admirably displays that. If you've never given this era a serious look, this book is a great introduction. I've been interested in the early years of Christianity for many years, and I loved this book.

This is NOT a book for a novice on the history of Rome, or even someone who has taken introductory level college courses on ancient Rome. The author does not take the time to define terms used in the book or give any amount of background when introducing new historical figures which makes the narrative difficult to digest. I'm sure the book is an excellent study on Roman warfare, but it will be a very difficult read for most readers.

This is indeed an excellent book for those who wish to better understand Western civilisation and the nature of the relationships between the Romans and other groups within the Empire.
The book is well-written and is the result of outstanding research.
