Eight essays, originally published 1976-91, discuss the historical and archaeological evidence from Roman imperial provinces in Africa and its interpretation, the climate and environment, and the close relationship between water and power. They are tied together by a concern with how Roman conquests were systematically organized and how Rome's control of and relationships with the conquered people were normalized.
