This is the first comprehensive study of the history of Asia Minor in antiquity to be written for nearly fifty years and the first attempt to treat Anatolian history as a whole over the millennium from the time of Alexander the Great to the hey day of the Byzantine Empire. The first volume isin two parts. The first examines the region in the Hellenistic period, when it was dominated by Celtic tribes who settled in the interior of Asia Minor in the first half of the third century BC. The second covers the period of the Roman Empire and looks in detail at the changes brought about byimperial rule. Two relationships dominated every aspect of Asia Minor's history throughout the period: that of the people to the land and that of men to the gods. An enormous quantity of information derived from written sources, archaeological remains, inscriptions, and coins make it possible toexplore these relationships at a level of detail which is hardly possible for any other part of the ancient world. Both themes have a significance which reached far beyond the boundaries of Anatolia.

Editorial Reviews

`excellent work...It is hard to do justice to the wide scope of this work and the immense learning which it displays and organizes into a coherent picture...throughout the work, M. pays careful attention to the physical environment, as evident in the clear maps and well-chosenillustrations...Reflection... is stimulated in innumerable ways by the wealth of information in this work.It embodies all the latest research, shows the influence of all the masters in the field, most notably Louis Robert, and allows a vast mass of virtually inaccesible information to be used andunderstood...All students of antiquity will learn much from these volumes, which will long stand as a monumental regional study.'Clive Foss, University of Massachusetts
