Herodian by Herodian( Book )

9 editions published between 1969 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 1,059 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The History of Herodian (born c. A.D. 178-179) covers a period of the Roman empire from the death of the emperor Marcus Aurelius (A.D. 180) to the accession of Gordian III (A.D. 238), half a century of turbulence, in which we can see the onset of the revolution which, in the words of Gibbon, "will ever be remembered, and is still felt by the nations of the earth". In these years, a succession of frontier crises and a disastrous lack of economic planning established a pattern of military coups and increasingly cultural pluralism that was to plague the Roman empire in its decline. Of this revolutionary epoch we know all too little. The selection of chance has destroyed all but a handful of the literary sources that deal with the immediate post-Antonine scene. Herodian's work is one of the few that have survived. It also happens to be the only contemporary work of history that has come down to us completely intact. Of the author himself we know virtually nothing, except that he served in some official capacity in the empire of which he wrote. The History, which is written in Greek, was apparently produced for the benefit of people in the Greek-speaking half of the Roman empire. It has many defects and failings. It betrays the faults of an age when truth was distorted by rhetoric and stereotypes were a substitute for sound reason. But, for all that, it is an essential document for any who would try to understand the nature of the Roman empire in an era of rapidly changing social and political institutions
Frontiers of the Roman Empire : a social and economic study by C. R Whittaker( Book )

33 editions published between 1989 and 2011 in English and French and held by 923 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Whittaker begins by discussing the Romans' ideological vision of geographic space - demonstrating, for example, how an interest in precise boundaries of organized territories never included a desire to set limits on controls of unorganized space beyond these territories. He then describes the role of frontiers in the expanding empire, including an attempt to answer the question of why the frontiers stopped where they did. He examines the economy and society of the frontiers. Finally, he discusses the pressure hostile outsiders placed on the frontiers, and their eventual collapse
