From Publishers Weekly: Medievalist Barbero (The Battle: A New History of Waterloo) offers a revisionist history of the relatively obscure battle of Adrianople, arguing that the course of world history changed after the clash in 378, in the eastern Roman province of Thrace, between an army of Goths and a Roman imperial army. The battle resulted in an overwhelming barbarian victory - the eastern emperor Valens died along with two-thirds of his army - setting in motion a train of events that led directly to "the fall of the western Roman Empire," according to Barbero.

Caligula: The Corruption of Power

By: Barrett, Anthony A.

Price: $5.00

Publisher: New Haven, Yale University Press: 1990

Edition: BCE

Seller ID: 01081038

ISBN: 0300046537

Condition: Near Fine


Making judicious use of the often incomplete and inconsistent sources from the life and rule of Caligula, Roman emperor A.D. 37-41, Barrett has succeeded in writing a detailed and full study intended to appeal to informed readers and students of Roman history. The historical significance of Caligula's reign is also examined, e.g., his treatment of Jews and plans to conquer Britain. In sum, Barrett's book offers new insights into a figure often avoided by academic biographers. - Jackson P. Hershbell, Univ. of Minnesota, Minneapolis. 368pp. View more info

Rome and the Barbarians, 100 B.C.-A.D. 400

By: Burns, Thomas S.

Price: $9.00

Publisher: Baltimore, The Johns Hopkins Press: 2003

Edition: BCE

Seller ID: 01104102

ISBN: 0801873061

Condition: Near Fine


An excellent study... Burns breaks the stereotype of the barbarians as destructive savages held in check by the Roman Empire. In its place he offers a balanced view of an evolving relationship between complex, diverse societies on the barbarian side and the civilized Romans... The book is enhanced by Burns's very effective integration of the traditional literary sources with the testimony of archaeological evidence... Sheds light on an important aspect of Roman history and is valuable to both the scholar and the beginning student (J. P. Karras Journal of Military History). 480pp. View more info
