About the Author

Meaghan A. McEvoy is a research scholar at the British School in Rome, a research fellow in Byzantine Studies at Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collections in Washington DC, and since 2010 has held a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship at Corpus Christi College, Oxford.


McEvoy's monograph will be essential reading ... and represents a major contribution to our understanding of one of the great transitional periods in European and world history. * David M. Gwynn, English Historical Review *
McEvoy has produced an impressive analysis that challenges historians to re-evaluate child emperors and the role traditionally assigned to them in destabilizing the western empire. * Richard Flower, Early Medieval Europe *
McEvoy is to be congratulated on producing a fine, clearly-written study which signifcantly advances our understanding of the exercise of political power during an important phase of late Roman history. * A. D. Lee, Journal of Roman Studies *
