PressestimmenReview of the hardback: 'Envoys and Political Communication is a valuable study both of the important role that embassies played in the Late Antique world and of the literary sources from which our evidence for those embassies derives. The stated aim of the book was to make 'a significant contribution to the developing field of ancient and medieval communication'. This Gillett has certainly achieved.' English Historical Review Review of the hardback: '... Gillet has produced an extremely learned and engaging study that deserves a very warm welcome from everyone interested in the transformation of the Roman world and the emergence of the early Middle Ages. It is lucid, fully documented, and it lays a very strong basis for any further research in the field.' Scripta Classica Israelica
