WILLIAMS, St., and G. FRIELL,
Theodosius. The Empire at Bay.
Routledge, London, 1994. 238,6p. ills.(B&W photographs, 4 maps). Paperback. Nice copy. 'The Theodosius of this brisk survey is a clear-sighted, capable, but emotionally somewhat unstable ruler, who was ultimately unfortunate in his manful struggle against heavy odds. Newcomers to the field will welcome the clear narrative, robust opinions, and sensible overview of the Theodosian Empire, especially the intelligent discussion of military matters (...). This liverly and unpretentious account will serve as a useful starting-point for undergraduates.' (NEIL McLYNN in The Journal of Roman Studies, 1995, p.334). From the library of Professor Carl Deroux.
