East and West in the Roman Empire of the Fourth Century
by Roald Dijkstra (ed.)
Publisher: Brill Academic 2015
Number of pages: 193
The book examines the (dis)unity of the Roman Empire in the fourth century from different angles, in order to offer a broad perspective on the topic and avoid an overvaluation of the political division of the empire in 395. After a methodological key-paper on the concepts of unity, the other contributors elaborate on these notions from various geopolitical perspectives.
