The attempts to assimilate by Germanic tribes into Roman territory also played a significant role in this chaos. In addition, the economy suffered considerably. An increased inflation resulted from “Diocletian’s attempts to establish a reliable currency” (Kagan 154). Romans struggled to pay their taxes, and subsequently grew resentful of the emperor. The economic differences that existed between the more rural West and commercial East further distanced the two empires from the others affairs.

Reasons/ Theories for the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire Authors have come up with a number of theories and reasons that led to the gradual decline and eventual fall of a once mighty empire. Nonetheless, historians agree on the fact that these theories are interwoven with one another. The first reason for the fall of the mighty Roman Empire is Lead Poisoning (Phillips III 30). The rich in the Roman Empire essentially used lead in various daily endeavors. For instance, a large number of orn... ... middle of paper ... ...ty, Sympathy, And The Colonial Relation In Edward Gibbon's The Decline And Fall Of The Roman Empire."
This over reach and over indulgence is partially to blame for the empire’s great downfall. The massive empire faced an administrative and logistical nightmare, even with the excellent road system. The government struggled to amass enough soldiers and resources to defend its territories from local rebellions and outside attacks, and by 122 CE, the Emperor Hadrian was forced to build his famous wall in the Roman providence of Britannia just to keep the enemy out of roman territories. As more and more funding was required to keep up military strength and upkeep of the empire, technological advancement slowed to a standstill and Rome’s municipal infrastructure fell into
A article best describes how the Roman Empire due to its economic issues. “The decline of the Roman Empire was due to economic causes, the diffusion of industry and the absence of a technological basis sufficient to support an empire of this size-in the last resort it was a product of the basic technological weakness in ancient civilization resulting from the institution of slavery.” Rome was not equipped with the technological ideas to support the empire. After the occurring death of Marcus Aurelius, who ought to be the last five good emperors, marked the end of the success of the second century. Most importantly after his death, the Roman Empire started to fall. It seems Marcus was maintaining the empire.
The World Wars severely weakened the European Empires to a point where their collapse became inevitable. The Empires became too weak militarily and economically to continue their activities in Asia and outside pressure from the United States superpower and the Japanese Occupation meant an end for imperialism in Asia. As much as European policies enacted different policies to try and halt independence movements, internal and external pressures were too much and the Empire eventually recognized that , as Harold McMillan put it, "the winds of change" were blowing across the world "whether we like it or not."
Emergence of Anti-Semitism in Germany Toward the End of the Weimar Republic There were many different factors that resulted in anti-Semitism emerging so strongly in Germany towards the end of the Weimar Republic. These factors included the instability of the economy during the reign of the Weimar Republic, the lingering anger over the way the Weimar Republic Governing Body had so easily accepted the Treaty of Versailles, and Germany's need for a great leader who would guide Germans to triumph. From the beginning the Weimar Republic was doomed, it being a republic that had been born out of a military defeat. One that so few Germans could accept. It was beset with many problems, leading many Germans either to withhold support from the Parliamentary Democracy or to seek actively to destroy it.
While there is much evidence for these theories (Prienne and Heather) and against them (Havighurse), they essentially only argue the definition of “fall”. The fact remains that the Roman Empire declined dramatically, split into two pieces, and that its capitol city was sacked on numerous occasions. Therefore, the rest of this essay will not deal with the largely semantic question of whether or not Rome fell, but why it fell. One of the main reasons for Rome’s fall was the collapse of its social order. The chief and best known argument for this is that Rome’s citizens lost their sense of civic responsibility, and became socially decadent, and that the economic interests of the Romans compromised their social stability.
The two sources selected for research, The Great Depression in Europe by Patricia Clavin and A Concise History of the Third Reich by Benz Wolfgang are used for their origins, purposes, limitations and values. B.) Summary of Evidence The destruction of labor, land and capital during the war caused European products to be less competitive in world markets and made Europe dependent on capital flows from the United States. (Clavin 19) The unproductive deployment of these inflows, most notably in Germany, resulted in the debt crisis that began to boil already in 1927. (Clavin 20) Both the political and social changes were equally important.
What actually instigated the degeneration of the Roman Empire? Some might argue that Germanic invasions coupled with the “otherworldly” rise of Christianity led to the Empire’s decline. This viewpoint, conversely, seems far too limited in scope. In any case, Ammianus Marcellinus, Salvian, and Theodosius all identify a multitude of factors that dissolved the Roman Empire. Though the destruction of invasions and the social change of new religion certainly played an important role, the fall of the empire was likely the result of countless complications, including decreased productivity in agrarian and manufacturing spheres as a result of soaring rates of inflation and taxation, civil dissension and rebellion, a fundamental change from an offensive
