5.0 out of 5 stars The history of Asia Minor: understandable and precise, 8 Mar 2001
This review is from: Anatolia: Land, Men, and Gods in Asia Minor: Celts and the Impact of Roman Rule v. 1 (Clarendon Paperbacks) (Paperback)
This title, in two volumes, covers the vast sweep of Asia Minor's history, from Alexander to the height of the Byzantine Empire. The first volume concentrates on two major periods; the early part of the 3rd century BC when Celtic tribes settled throughout the interior, and the coming of the Romans and their colonisation of the eastern flank of their empire. Mr Mitchell has crafted an enormously readable history of the region. The detail is extraordinary but the prose never becomes turgid or obtuse. By examining the intertwined complexities of people's relations to the land and their Gods, Mr Mitchell has broken new ground and produced a book that is that most unusual of beasts, both readable and scholarly.
