About the Author

Greg Fisher is currently Assistant Professor of Greek and Roman Studies at Carleton University in Ottawa, where he teaches courses on Rome and the barbarians, the Near East, and Roman imperial history.


`Review from previous edition I would heartily recommend this book for anyone interested in the affairs and status of the Arabs in the sixth century. For anybody interested in the history of the Arabs immediately prior to the Rise of Islam, it is vital reading' UNRV Website, Ian Hughes `Greg Fisher provides a fresh contribution to an historical problem of considerable interest, that of the identity, role, and place of the Arabs in contact with the Roman and Sasanian empires before the advent of Islam ... the author offers readers a masterful synthesis ... This is a work of advanced scholarship for advanced scholars.' CHOICE `Between Empires provides a compact, cogent introduction to, and explanation of, Rome's relationship with its Arab clients. It should be in every serious research library.' Matthew P. Canepa, Sehepunkte `Fisher has made a valuable contribution to the various historical debates he has joined, not least through his surveys, with bibliographical references, of the current state of scholarship.' James Howard-Johnston, Bulletin of the School of Oriental and African Studies
