Last month saw the publication of the Oxford Handbook of Late Antiquity, edited by Scott Johnson, Dumbarton Oaks Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow in Byzantine Greek at Georgetown University. Five years in the making, the Handbook contains thirty-seven chapters on all aspects of Late Antiquity, a period that has become increasingly central to the study of Byzantium and the medieval West. However, the geographical scope of this book is unparalleled among comparable surveys of the period: it includes, among others, chapters on the Balkans, Armenia, Ethiopia and Arabia, and Central Asia.
