He argues that a key factor in the empires military and administrative failures was a steady loss of control over government, as its aims and focus were thwarted for private gain by officials and military men at all ranks.

The fruit of a decade of research and analysis presented in an informal and lively style, this book offers the first survey of just what evidence exists for the decline, and provides a fascinating, fresh line of explanation for the empires most obvious inadequacies in the face of its economic and military challenges.
