Reviews
"Rome and the Indian Ocean Trade is a fascinating monograph on a subject that has grown more and more popular among scholars over the last century. (...) Overall, this book provides a very good introduction to the trade between the Roman Empire and the Indian Ocean. It will likely be of greatest interest to ancient economic historians, but the thorough descriptions and explanations of facts and concepts make the book accessible to a general, non-specialist audience. (...) The author is to be commended for producing a publication that is a valuable contribution to the study of ancient international trade and serves as a model for sound, well-reasoned scholarship." - Dario Nappo, in: CJ online 2019.07.08
"Cobb präsentiert einen kenntnisreichen Überblick zum Osthandel, der sich auf eine breite Quellengrundlage stützt und den aktuellen Stand der Forschung widerspiegelt. Sein Verdienst ist es zweifellos, eine gelungene und auf umfangreichen eigenen Recherchen basierende Zusammenschau der jüngeren wissenschaftlichen Auseinandersetzung mit dem Osthandel zu bieten. Sein Buch wird auch angesichts der ständig wachsenden und fast unüberschaubaren Literaturfülle weiteren Studien zur Thematik als Hilfsmittel willkommen sein." - Monika Schuol, Katholische Universität Eichstätt-Ingolstadt, in: Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2020.09.39
