Summary

Summary

A serious study of Attila, who ruled over a vast (but short lived) empire in the Fifth Century, at the time of the disintegration of the Roman Empire and the emergence of the great barbarians, this volume is particularly suited to college-level courses of the period. Timeline tables make the contemporaneous rulers and events clear and understandable, including the Eastern and Western split of Rome, the successions of Huns and Visigoths. At last, a study of the Huns that examines the legends critically as it tells the story of one of the most maligned and least understood peoples. -- A highly suitable book for academic and public libraries, particularly since there is so little substantive information on the subject in English for general readers.
