The Fall of Empires description

Powerful empires seem invincible... until they fall. What causes great global empires to recede, or even vanish? Two of the world’s leading historians Serhii Plokhy and Christopher Clark have analysed the demise of great empires in masterful publications including Serhii’s The Last Empire on the collapse of the Soviet Union and Christopher’s Iron Kingdom on the fall of Prussia. They discuss the characteristics of empires past and assess the vulnerabilities of today’s imperial powers.
