David Dillon-Smith , University of Wollongong. This thesis examines a significant aspect of Gibbon's thought and outlook and its effect on his major work. Part I traces the development of moral attitudes in the man and their expression in his early and exploratory writings. The first and second chapters trace this development through his reaction to Oxford, his apprenticeship in Lausanne and his return to England, as the moral foundations were laid and tested till the aspiring historian was ready to turn his mind to the choice of a satisfying subject. Chapter three pauses to survey the principles he explored and tentatively set down in his first publication and notes their significance for the emerging historian. Chapter four considers his quest for a worthy subject and suggests that the first topics were rejected as unsatisfactory, primarily on moral grounds.

History Of The Decline And Fall Of The Roman Empire. Edward Gibbon, Esq. With notes by the Rev. H. H. Milman. Complete Contents. (Written), .
It traces Western civilization as well as the Islamic and Mongolian conquests from the height of the Roman Empire to the fall of Byzantium. The six volumes cover the history, from 98 to , of the Roman Empire , the history of early Christianity and then of the Roman State Church , and the history of Europe, and discusses the decline of the Roman Empire among other things. Gibbon offers an explanation for the fall of the Roman Empire , a task made difficult by a lack of comprehensive written sources, though he was not the only historian to attempt it. According to Gibbon, the Roman Empire succumbed to barbarian invasions in large part due to the gradual loss of civic virtue among its citizens. He began an ongoing controversy about the role of Christianity, but he gave great weight to other causes of internal decline and to attacks from outside the Empire. The story of its ruin is simple and obvious; and, instead of inquiring why the Roman empire was destroyed, we should rather be surprised that it had subsisted so long.
Ну и чертовщина. Перед глазами возник текст: PRIMEDIFFERENCEBETWEEN ELEMENTSRESPONSIBLE FORHIROSHIMAANDNAGASAKI - Введите пробелы, - приказала Сьюзан. - Нам предстоит решить одну задачку.

- Хейл - это… Сьюзан замерла. Должно быть, это какая-то ошибка.
Беккер намеревался позвонить Сьюзан с борта самолета и все объяснить. Он подумал было попросить пилота радировать Стратмору, чтобы тот передал его послание Сьюзан, но не решился впутывать заместителя директора в их личные дела. Сам он трижды пытался связаться со Сьюзан - сначала с мобильника в самолете, но тот почему-то не работал, затем из автомата в аэропорту и еще раз - из морга. Сьюзан не было дома. Он не мог понять, куда она подевалась.
Да, - ответил дружный хор голосов. - Так вот… - Соши шумно вздохнула. - Похоже, я ошиблась. - Что?! - чуть не подпрыгнул Джабба.
