Rezensionen
"A provocative and highly readable synthesis of the most important period of transition and transformation in the history of the western world." -Ralph W. Mathisen, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

"Stephen Mitchell provides an exceptionally clear and detailed account both of the march of events and of the structures of the Empire. His discussions of major problems are both balanced and forceful, not shrinking from indicating what his preferred solutions are. The book is a model exposition of a complex subject." -Fergus Millar, Oxford

"Mitchell deploys his comprehensive knowledge of the sources to construct a veritable fortress of erudition. This updated second edition stands up to all contenders as the most solid introduction to the later Roman Empire." -Noel Lenski, University of Colorado at Boulder

"S. Mitchell's second edition provides a lucid and informed reading of the period. The inclusion of recent advances in archaeology is most necessary for understanding the changes that took place over these centuries, and the new chapter 13 is a welcome overview of the perennial debate over the decline and fall of the Roman Empire. It serves as a wonderful introduction to the complexities of this period." -Michele Renee Salzman, University of California, Riverside
