The Euphrates, a vital ancient trade route, formed the eastern limit of the Roman Empire. The river is the focus of this detailed historical account by the doyenne of Middle East travel writers, which covers eight centuries of Rome’s involvement in the region. Writing during the Cold War, Stark emphasizes the futility of such arbitrary boundaries and shows how trading communities gain mutually from traffic and lose through war.
