Editorial Reviews

New York Review of Books - Peter Brown
[Cameron] has proved in her many studies, as now in her Dialoguing in Late Antiquity, that she can deliver the goods. She has shown that we can bring new approaches to bear to change the way we see a distant world that still cries out for explanation.
