Praise

“Gibbon is one of those few who hold as high a place in the history of literature as in the roll of great historians.”—Professor J. B. Bury
 
“Gibbon is a landmark and a signpost—a landmark of human achievement: and a signpost because the social convulsions of the Roman Empire as described by him sometimes prefigure and indicate convulsions which shake the whole world today.”—E. M. Forster
 
“I devoured Gibbon. I rode triumphantly through it from end to end and enjoyed it all.”—Winston Churchill
 
“Gibbon is a kind of bridge that connects the ancient with the modern ages.”—Thomas Carlyle
 
“Gibbon is not merely a master of the pageant and the story; he is also the critic and the historian of the mind. . . . We seem as we read him raised above the tumult and the chaos into a clear and rational air.”—Virginia Woolf
