The Decline of the West, The Clash of Civilizations, The End of History, The Fall of the American Empire, The Battle for America’s Border, While Europe Slept: from the sound of these cataclysmic titles one would think that none of this has ever happened before! In 1776 Edward Gibbon, in his classic The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, established the framework by which the demise of Rome and every other great empire is studied and evaluated. This course will analyze Gibbon’s analysis, then embark upon an in-depth study of names, events, and movements, and end with an examination of Rome’s fall and the legitimacy of comparisons to current events.
The lectures are richly illustrated with images, and course materials include detailed lecture notes and an extensive illustrated syllabus.
Lecture notes outline available as a printed book from Amazon.com.
Notes in PDF format will be provided with DVD purchase.
