From the Back Cover
"Edward Gibbon, in The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, has always been my cynosure...Gibbon's mind was surely the most powerful and most lucid one that has appeared so far in the whole distinguished company of Western historians...Gibbon [produced] a masterpiece of historical research, construction, and writing which had no superior in its own genre in any literature." --Arnold Toynbee
