Review quote

"Romans and Barbarians can and should be recommended to students of the late Roman Empire, of early Germanic history and society, and of the early medieval history of the Mediterranean area and of western and central Europe.... Thompson himself points out that very rarely if ever can we penetrate into the minds and attitudes of the barbarians whom we are trying to understand. In this and other writings. Thompson has come as close to achieving this ideal as anyone is likely to." - Welden A. Ernest, German Studies Reviewshow more
