Most widely held works by G. P Baker
Constantine the Great and the Christian revolution by G. P Baker( Book )

36 editions published between 1930 and 2003 in English and held by 1,061 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Roman Emperor Constantine is one of the most momentous figures in the history of Christianity, a ruler whose conversion turned the cult of Jesus into a world religion. Classical scholar Baker tells of the changing Roman world in which Constantine rose to power-an empire where feudalism was replacing the old senatorial government and the lands of the empire were split into two regions. It was also a place where customs from the East were replacing the old Roman values, preparing the way for the Byzantine Empire. Baker describes Constantine's unique conversion (which apparently did not prevent him from sacrificing to idols), his wars to control first the Roman army and then the Germans and the lands of Asia Minor, and finally the founding of Constantinople and the establishment of the monarchial system that dominated Europe for over a thousand years."--

Tiberius Cæsar by G. P Baker( Book )

34 editions published between 1928 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 841 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The great conundrum of his character and the political significance of his long reign, which solidified the imperial government of Rome, render the life of Tiberius Caesar (42 B.C.-37 A.D.) - second emperor of Rome and successor of Augustus - a subject of perennial interest. From the mass of available evidence two men can be constructed, both equally credible: one, an upright, gruff soldier-statesman, austere, just, capable; the other, a corrupt, murderous tyrant with gargantuan and depraved appetites."--BOOK JACKET

"G. P. Baker describes the codification of Roman law under Justinian's sponsorship, a monumental feat of lasting importance; the bloody successes of the emperor's brilliant general Belisarius (505-565 A.D.) against the Vandals, Goths, and Persians; and the duplicity of Procopius (ca. 500-565 A.D.), who bequeathed to history a scandalous and depraved portrait of the couple's cruelty, greed, and sexual excesses. Justinian presents a reappraisal of their reign."--Provided by publisher
