FURTHER READING

1. The Transformation of the Roman Mediterranean

GENERAL

R. S. Lopez, The Birth of Europe ( London, 1967), a lively if idiosyncratic survey of the Middle Ages from a mainly Mediterranean perspective.

L. Musset, The Germanic Invasions. The Making of Europe, A.D. 400-600 ( London, 1975), an admirably lucid and penetrating discussion.

D. Talbot Rice (ed.), The Dark Ages. The Making of European Civilization ( London, 1965), profusely illustrated, with some- chapters much more stimulating than others.

J. M. Wallace-Hadrill, The Barbarian West ( 3rd edn. London, 1967), the best short work on the early Middle Ages, to be used with caution on the Mediterranean because of an underplaying of Byzantine influence.


ROMANS AND BARBARIANS UP TO 565

P. Brown, The World of Late Antiquity ( London, 1971), the most stimulating short account of the Late Roman Empire.

R. Browning, Justinian and Theodora ( London, 1971) sensible, thorough, and well illustrated.

J. B. Bury, A History of the Later Roman Empire from the Death of Theodosius to the Death of Justinian ( 2 vols., repr. New York, 1958), still the most reliable narrative account in English.

W. A. Goffart, Barbarians and Romans, A.D. 418-584 ( Princeton, NJ, 1980), a provocative work of revisionism.

A. H. M. Jones, The Later Roman Empire ( 3 vols., Oxford, 1964), a magisterial survey of all aspects of the subject; his The Decline of the Ancient World ( London, 1966) is a dull condensed version.


BYZANTIUM AND THE BALKANS

R. Browning, Byzantium and Bulgaria ( London, 1975), a concise, scholarly study.
