    When I ordered this I expected a pop-history book, without really high quality scholarship, so the quality of research was a very pleasant surprise. A very significant majority of the book is concerned with the 3rd century which is the least well documented era for the Roman Empire ...

    This book covers a period of Roman history that is often ignored, especially in popular culture. But the late Empire is the bridge from the classical world of pagan religion and unquestioned Roman hegemony to the Christian Middle Ages and the early emergence of the individual (European...

    A nice survey of a period of Roman history which is often neglected--indeed, I had never read a volume dedicated to the age of the Barracks Emperors. The book reads well, and it is probably not the author's fault if all the names of the usurpers become a blur after a while. ...

    This was an excellent history of the later Roman empire, covering from Hadrian to Constantine's sons, and including the Severan dynasty and the "Third Century Crisis." Most histories of Rome focus on the late Republic and early empire, so this a very useful addition to the available bo...

    History of the Roman Empire from the time of the Antonines through Constantine including the third-century crisis where the Empire went through a series of civil wars and coups and was challenged at its frontiers but managed to hold together. When people think of the Roman Empire they ...

    This is a history of the Roman Empire from the 2nd to the mid-4th centuries. The main focus is on Emperors, would-be Emperors, and their families. At times it is hard to keep track of all the names, but the book does a reasonable job of conveying the broad picture of imperial successio...

    A great book, particularly if you're interested in the time period. He presents it very well and talks not just about the Emperors but about government and other officials. My only main critique is that sometimes all the names can become confusing (the author even notes that in one par...

    In a world filled with books on either the rise or fall of the Roman Empire, one book dares summarize to us what the hell happened in between. The author's overall argument seems to be that as time went on, fewer and fewer emperors came from Rome, and in fact Italy itself. eventuall...

    A detailed yet fairly easy-to-follow sketch of "middle" Roman Empire with all the bloody palace intrigues, without missing the process of emergence of equestrian class. ...
