Select critical bibliography
"... 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
