Short Description for Barbarians within the Gates of Rome At the death of the Emperor Valentinian I in 375, Rome had behind it centuries of dealing with barbarian people along its frontiers. This book shows that the Roman policy toward the barbarians was evolutionary rather than revolutionary, even though crisis upon crisis befell Rome during this period.

Full description for Barbarians within the Gates of Rome
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.
