About the Author

Stephen Williams is a freelance writer. His most recent book is Theodosius: The Empire at Bay.


"[Williams] has performed a valuable service for the profession as well as for the general reader ... his judgment of particular matters is invariably sound, and the book is a well-written synthesis."
-"American Historical Review USE
"Stephen Williams is not a professional Roman historian, but he is certainly an expert, and his view of Diocletian is original and convincing. ... [He] is an equitable and balanced historian and I think one can rely on him."
-Peter Levi
"This is the first biography of Diocletian in English and is written both for students of history and politics and for general readers."
-"The Bloomsbury Review USE
"This biography is never dull, for the author writes with considerable style, and he has the ability to turn a neat phrase."
-James E. Seaver "History Reviews of New Books
