Although, Erdkamp argues, the Roman army may only have accounted for approximately 1% of the population of the empire, it exerted a disproportionate influence on imperial and regional economies. This collection of sixteen papers examine the links between military and economic matters between the Augustan and the early Byzantine periods, throwing light on both the changing nature of the army and the empire's economic crises. Divided into four parts, the papers focus on the logistics and problems of supplying the Roman armies, communications and transport, the Roman West, North Africa and the East. Three papers in German, one in French, the rest in English.
