Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A masterful account."—The Historian

"Providing an account of this period, especially the fifth-century segment, is like assembling a jigsaw puzzle that lacks at least two-thirds of its pieces. Heather is skilled at joining the pieces that fit. Complicated, poorly documented sequences...are ably reconstructed....A major work whose findings merit serious attention."—American Historical Review

"This is a significant book for specialists and can be read with profit by non-specialists interested in the period. Classroom teachers in schools and colleges will appreciate the consistent and thematic development and the careful effort at estimating the size of populations and forces involved."—The Classical Outlook, Winter 1994
