Book Review: Tilling The Hateful Earth: Agricultural Production And Trade In The Late Antique East By Michael Decker, David B. Hollander

History Publications

Michael Decker's monograph examines late antique agriculture in the Roman diocese of Oriens, an administrative unit stretching along the Mediterranean coast from the Sinai Peninsula to southern Anatolia, extending to Mesopotamia in the East and embracing Cyprus to the West. Although mainly concerned with the period between 300 and 700 CE, the book has plenty to offer those interested in earlier periods of classical antiquity.
