..."as a summary of the "state of the study," this book is invaluable- comprehensive, insightful, and wonderfully lucid. The endnotes alone make this text a superlative resource for advanced courses and seminars in classical and medieval history...Historians who focus on only one region of the Mediterranean...will be challenged by its breadth of vision, mastery of detail, and up-to-date currency.."-" AHNC Journal, Vol. 4, Fall 1996
The Mediterranean World in Late Antiquity: AD 395-600 deals with the exciting period commonly known as late antiquity' - the fifth and sixth centuries. The Roman empire in the west was splitting into separate Germanic kingdoms, while the Near East, still under Roman or Byzantine rule from Constantinople, maintained a dense population and flourishing urban culture until the Persian and Arab invasions of the early seventh century. The book has much to say to historians of all periods. It will be particularly welcomed by teachers and students in both ancient and medieval history. Averil Cameron places her emphasis on the material and literary evidence for cultural change and offers a new and original challenge to traditional assumptions of 'decline and fall' and 'the end of antiquity'. The book draws on the recent spate of scholarship on this period to discuss in detail controversial issues such as the capacity of the late Roman army, the late antique city and the nature of economic exchange and cultural life.With its extensive annotation, it provides a lively, and often critical introduction to earler approaches to the period, from Edward Gibbon's Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire to the present day. No existing book in English provides so detailed or up-to-date an introduction to the history of both halves of the empire in this crucial period, or discusses existing views in such a challenging way. This book has much to say to historians of all periods, and will be particularly welcomed by teachers and students in both ancient and medieval history. Averil Cameron is a leading specialist on late antiquity, having written about the period and taught it for many years. Alle Produktbeschreibungen
