Blending rich narrative with in-depth analyses of political, social, and economic history, In the Land of a Thousand Gods provides the first comprehensive history of Asia Minor from prehistory to the Roman imperial period. In this English translation of the critically acclaimed German book, Christian Marek draws on the latest research and masterfully employs ancient sources—in fields ranging from demography and economics to architecture and religion—to describe how Asia Minor became a center of culture and wealth in the Roman Empire.
Marek traces Asia Minor's shifting orientation between East and West and examines its role as both a melting pot of nations and a bridge for cultural transmission. Guiding readers from the earliest known Stone Age settlements to the end of Antiquity, In the Land of a Thousand Gods is truly panoramic in scope.
