Write The First Customer Review

Gibbon's History is one of the great master-narratives in the Western tradition. This book examines the ways in which Gibbon uses numbers: not only as historical evidence, for informational purposes, but to persuade (and sometimes to amuse), through the creation of a narrative voice that is at once authoritative and personal.
