Since Edward Gibbon, the degree of disruption or gradual change at the end of antiquity has been vehemently debated. Did Rome fall, or was it only transformed. Was the Empire destroyed by barbarians or was its decay inevitable for internal reasons? By carefully formulating answers to these and other seminal questions, Kingdoms of the Empire will prove an indispensable tool to both classical and medieval scholars.This is the first volume in a new and important monograph series, The Transformation of the Roman World.Table of ContentsWalter Pohl: Introduction--The Empire and the Integration of Barbarians.Gerhard Wirth: Rome and its Germanic Partners in the Fourth Century.Peter Heather: Foedera and Foederati of the Fourth Century.Walter Pohl: The Empire and the Longobards--Treaties and Negotiations in the Sixth Century.Wolf Liebeschuetz: Cities, Taxes and the Accommodation of the Barbarians--The Theories of Durliat and Goffart.Jean Durliat: Cit, impt et intgration des barbares.Herwig Wolfram: Neglected Evidence on the Accommodation of Barbarians in Gaul.Evangelos Chrysos: Conclusion--De foederatis iterum.
