by G. W. Bowersock (Editor), Peter Brown (Editor), Oleg Grabar (Editor)
No current Talk conversations about this book.
OF interest largely to history buffs and specialists in the era. The essays about the actual role of barbarian incursions, including the idea that these were not tribes so much as temporary alliances around a successful war leader, contributes to that 'everything you know is wrong' feeling often induced by academic rather than popular history books.

The era of late antiquity--from the middle of the third century to the end of the eighth--was marked by the rise of two world religions, unprecedented political upheavals that remade the map of the known world, and the creation of art of enduring glory. In these eleven in-depth essays, drawn from the award-winning reference work Late Antiquity: A Guide to the Postclassical World, an international cast of experts provides essential information and fresh perspectives on this period's culture and history.
