The Holy Roman Empire
by James Bryce
Publisher: The Macmillan Company 1871
Number of pages: 460
The object of this treatise is not so much to give a narrative history of the countries included in the Romano-Germanic Empire -- Italy during the middle ages, Germany from the ninth century to the nineteenth -- as to describe the Holy Empire itself as an institution or system, the wonderful offspring of a body of beliefs and traditions which have almost wholly passed away from the world.

This book does not offer a simplistic narrative. Instead, it analyses the origins and nature of Roman imperialism, its economic, social and cultural impact on the regions it conquered, and its continuing influence in debates about modern imperialism.
