    I wasn't but 30 pages in when I felt my boots were heavy with mud and I was reading in bed I also discovered mysteriously I had been transported to Roman York for an inordinate amount of timeGPBaker wrote this book in 1930 and it shows Galerius one of the contestants for Diocletian's empire is described as He certainly had the Mongol touch in his temper To some sorts of feeling he was entirely obtuse He ruled by terrorismpg 73 Another case of this presumptive knowing of the human condition is as follows A slave who knew his job and cared to put his back into his work could be reasonable sure of a holding and eventual freedom Only the less competent and less trustworthy need remain in servile condition pg 209How does Baker separate wheat from the chaff? Through obedience And some day you'll have your chance Or you'll be called the Beast for as long as you are held to the reader as a monument of Asiatic rule as opposed to Constantine who practiced an early form of democracyThis book gets a star because there's useful information in here for example on the transition from a society that used human chattel to one that we could call sharecropping And of course there's the continual movement of troops I think the reader would be much better off reading Robert Graves' Belisarius or anything by Steven Runciman His work is written at about the same time and far superior
