Pressestimmen'I had bought this volume before I was asked to review it, the best possible compliment surely to publishers, editors, and contributors alike.' The Classical Review 'Cameron and Garnsey deserve congratulations for this: the volume will last at least as long as the first editions of CAH did (of course they did not cover this period at all), and maybe longer.' Journal of Roman Studies
