Product Overview

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
Editors Note 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.
