This book is designed to explain when, how, and why the Romans began a policy of allowing large, unified, and potentially troublesome groups of barbarians onto Roman soil. It is also a study in the Roman decision-making processes that resulted from the flow of local and regional information up the chain and the corresponding strategic decisions moving downward through the administrative hierarchies.
From the Publisher:
Burns (history, Emory U.) having written much about the Ostrogoths and other Germanic people, inquires why during a crucial half century the Romans adopted a policy of letting them settle on Roman soil and eventually became dependent on them to serve in the army. There was no great shift in policy, he finds, just a series of small steps each of which was the path of least resistance. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
