In this essay, I’m supposed to summarize the “fall” of the Roman Empire, comparing the arguments laid out in two books; The Fall of Rome: And The End of Civilization by Bryan Ward-Perkins and The Inheritance of Rome: A History of Europe from 400 to 1000 by Christopher Wickham The former argues that the end of antiquity marked a distinct disappearance of comfort and an end to civilization, while the latter argues that it was more of a transitional period and that Rome lived on through the Byzantines and Germanic tribes. The exact prompt is as follows: “‘How and why did the Roman Empire fall, and are you more convinced by the arguments of Ward-Perkins or Wickham?’ This essay must be a minimum of 5 pages (full pages), typed, double-spaced, 11 pt. font. They must not only engage with the question in a critical, full, and complete manner, but must also include citations in the Chicago or Turabian style. Footnotes/endnotes will count towards the word limit, but the bibliography/works cited will not.” I need it by Friday at midnight.
