Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article discusses the political use of the fall of the Roman empire and in particular the way this historical motif has been utilized in environmental debates and in US political culture. It is furthermore argued that the historiography of the fall of the Roman empire bears witness to the ideological and existential contexts of specific explanations to why Rome fell.
