Benjamin Isaac is one of the most distinguished historians of the ancient world, with a number of landmark monographs to his name. This volume collects most of his published articles and book chapters of the last two decades, many of which are not easy to access, and republishes them for the first time along with some brand new chapters. The focus is on Roman concepts of state and empire and mechanisms of control and integration. Isaac also discusses ethnic and cultural relationships in the Roman Empire and the limits of tolerance and integration, as well as attitudes to foreigners and minorities, including Jews. The book will appeal to scholars and students of ancient, imperial, and military history, as well as to those interested in the ancient history of problems which still resonate in today's societies.

Le favole in prosa greco-latine degli Hermeneumata Pseudodositheana, composte in ambito scolastico tra III e IV secolo e tramandate da manoscritti carolingi nelle due redazioni leidense e parigina, costituiscono l'unica raccolta di argomento esopico-fedriano conservatasi per l'età tardoantica. La redazione parigina, tràdita dal solo manoscritto Paris, BnF, lat. 6503 (Corbie, sec. IX 3/4), rappresenta una testimonianza importante per la trasmissione dei temi narrativi favolistici di matrice classica in lingua latina in Occidente tra il Basso Impero e l'Alto Medioevo. Di essa il presente volume pubblica l'edizione diplomatica delle favole nelle due versioni latina e greca che aggiorna quella di George Goetz del 1892, alla luce di un esame autoptico del codice, il testo critico di quella latina corredato dalla prima traduzione italiana completa e un commento storico-letterario che pone a confronto le singole favole con le loro principali attestazioni antiche e mediolatine.
