LBB Presents ONLINE: Douglas Boin and Lorri Glover – Alaric the Goth

Left Bank Books welcomes Saint Louis University History Professor Douglas Boin, who will discuss his new book, “Alaric the Goth: An Outsider’s History of the Fall of Rome,” on Facebook Live at 7pm CDT on September 17. Boin will be in conversation with Saint Louis University History Professor Lorri Glover. Join us on our Facebook Page and order a copy of “Alaric the Goth” from Left Bank Books. Stigmatized and relegated to the margins of Roman society, the Goths were violent “barbarians” who destroyed “civilization,” at least in the conventional story of Rome’s collapse. But a slight shift of perspective brings their history, and ours, shockingly alive. Denied citizenship by the Roman Empire, a soldier named Alaric changed history by unleashing a surprise attack on the capital city of an unjust empire. Combining vivid storytelling and historical analysis, Douglas Boin reveals the Goths’ complex and fascinating legacy in shaping our world.
