Item Description...

Marked by the shift of power from Rome to Constantinople and the Christianization of the Empire, this pivotal era requires a narrative and interpretative history of its own. Averil Cameron, an authority on later Roman and early Byzantine history and culture, captures the vigor and variety of the fourth century, doing full justice to the enormous explosion of recent scholarship.

After a hundred years of political turmoil, civil war, and invasion, the Roman Empire that Diocletian inherited in AD 284 desperately needed the radical restructuring he gave its government and defenses. His successor, Constantine, continued the revolution by adopting--for himself and the Empire--a vibrant new religion: Christianity. The fourth century is an era of wide cultural diversity, represented by figures as different as Julian the Apostate and St. Augustine. Cameron provides a vivid narrative of its events and explores central questions about the economy, social structure, urban life, and cultural multiplicity of the extended empire. Examining the transformation of the Roman world into a Christian culture, she takes note of the competition between Christianity and Neoplatonism. And she paints a lively picture of the new imperial city of Constantinople. By combining literary, artistic, and archaeological evidence. Cameron has produced an exciting record of social change. "The Later Roman Empire" is a compelling guide for anyone interested in the cultural development of late antiquity.

Ok for An Introductory Undergraduate History Course, Not Bad Or Great  Dec 12, 2006
1) This book is an easy read, as textbooks go.
2) This book is an INTRODUCTORY OVERVIEW of its subject. The avid history buff will not find anything new.
3) Buy the paperback edition! However,libraries have had it for fifteen years.
4) Despite the title, it only covers third and fourth centuries.
A More than Satisfactory Account of Fourth-Century Rome  Apr 17, 2005
Averil Cameron's up-to-date summation on the Later Roman Empire covers the turbulent world of fourth-century Rome. The author rather wisely bases her work on the most recent studies in the field, while remaining true and quite at home with the original sources. Cameron also has a good feel for the social and political spheres of the "divided" empire of East and West. With the coloring of her own insights, this work presents a more than satisfactory account of the subjects treated. This is a readable and reliable book which would feel most comfortable in the hands of beginner students.
Not Deserving of Criticism  Jun 30, 2000
Salutations all. I have read this book for a college course at UC Riverside. I admit Cameron's book is difficult to digest, but it is intigueing nonetheless (read the last chapter for a preview of our own civilization's collapse. The book scans the Western Empire: Diocletian, Constantine, Julian, Theodosius, and prominent barbarians. That said, it focuses primarily on the West although signifigant portions are alotted to the city of Constantinople and its military catastrophes up until the dynsty of Theodosius. There are at lesat two chapters covering the West's society& culture and government. There is one chapter set aside for Christianity with some startling evidence of the harsh behavior Christians held towards humanity. Worth reading
The Later Roman Empire  Dec 8, 1999
I thought the book was boring, and it depicted the role of Constantine. Constantine helped preserve Christianity and the Roman Empire.I thought that all the author did was put footnotes in and then give her opinion of those footnotes.
