Well researched and comprehensive scholarly study 4. April 2012
Von J. Groen - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This book is a well researched and comprehensive scholarly study of the frontiers of the Roman Empire. The author uses both the primary references and archaelogical finds to evaluate the frontiers from Britain through Germany, the Danube river, Syria and Turkey and even Africa. All geographical areas of the Roman Empire are covered and all periods from Augustus through the fifth century.

I was really impressed with both the research and thoroughness of the study. And, the pictures and maps do a good job of depicting what towers, walls, forts and fortlets looked like during all periods of Rome. The book also focuses on the emperors who were the most active at building up the empire's frontiers, starting with Hadrian, for whom the great wall in Britain is named, through Valentinian in the fourth century.

On the negative side, and the reason that I can't give the book the highest rating, the prose rambles and tends to get dry and boring at times (like most scholarly studies of the Roman Empire.) Consequently, I would only recommend this book for those individuals who are truly interested in this period. This is not for the casual reader - it required my attention fully to keep with what the author was writing.

However, I do recommend this book and will keep it as a future reference in my home.

Interesting reading and a great reference! 8. März 2012
Von Aristotle S Spencer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Professor David J Breeze set out to study Roman frontiers in detail. He especially wanted to study the activities and movement of people at such borders and the establishment of defence structures;their construction, their purpose and how they worked. By doing so he has been able to detail the role of the soldiers (defence or/and implementation of Roman law), the impact of an emperor's ambition (such as Emperor Hadrian and his creation in Britain), the methods of construction of forts and walls and especially the types of building materials used. Interestingly, he challenges some long held historical views on Roman frontiers.

The book is not boring. It is well written and can be interesting and useful to lay readers or to those doing serious studies in the classics. It can be read as a continuous piece of work or simply used as a reference when required. The colour plates and sketches add depth to the book.

The author is not an armchair writer as he has travelled extensively to study first hand numerous Roman frontiers, he has consulted with the local experts and he has also done a thorough investigation into the literature on this subject and it is extensively detailed in the bibliography.Therefore, this book can be a great addition to one's library on the Roman Empire.

Good but it gets bogged down at times 5. März 2013
Von Chris - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This shows a little known part of Roman history but it gets bogged down in details at some points and seems to reply on written sources too much..
Still it is about a subject I've never seen discussed anywhere else.

A Fresh Look at the "Edges" of the Roman Empire 21. Juli 2013
Von A. A. Nofi - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
A summary of the review on StrategyPage.Com:

'An overview of current thinking on the nature and role of Rome's frontiers by one of the most distinguished scholars in the field. Prof. Breeze (Chairman, International Congress of Roman Frontier Studies), author of The Antonine Wall and Hadrian's Wall (Penguin History), divides the subject into three parts. He opens with a review ancient literature referring to the frontiers and the evidence from archaeology and other siences. Then he takes a closer look at the frontiers, section by section. But he does this not by picking a starting point and following the frontier around the empire. Rather Breeze takes a thematic approach, comparing and contrasting the ways in which the Romans adapted their notions of frontier security to the nature of the terrain, seas, forests, rivers, swamps, mountains, and more, and how frontier arrangements were influenced by Roman notions of those beyond the limits of the empire, from quasi-Romanized tribesmen to casual bandits, large scale raiders, and so forth right up to potential conquerors. Finally, he draws a series of conclusions, discussing the purpose of the frontier systems, their evolution, variations in military deployments , even strategic planning, and ends with a consideration of the overall effectiveness of the entire concept. This work is indispensable for any student of Roman military institutions and policies, and likely to be the standard work for some time.'
