Textbooks

  1. The Roman Empire at Bay, AD 180–395, 2nd Edition - David S. Potter

    “The classic account of the years 180-395, from the death of Commodus to the reign of Theodosius II and the arrival of the Goths in the Roman empire. It is the only volume of its kind to span this important period that scholars far too oftentimes divided by the reign of Constantine into a pre-Christian and a Christian Roman empire." - Susanna Elm, University of California, Berkeley, USA

    "Potter’s book is the best textbook on the high and late Roman empire, above all because it is so much more than a textbook.”Gavin Kelly, University of Edinburgh, UK
