Constantine Reconsidered

I noted a recent book on Constantine that we had expertly reviewed in Logos: A Journal of Eastern Christian Studies last year by the Byzantine historian Daniel Larison. Now another collection has come out examining Constantine's influence and legacy: Noel Lenski, ed., The Cambridge Companion to the Age of Constantine (Cambridge Companions to the Ancient World), 2nd ed (CUP, 2012), 550pp. 

About this book the publisher says:
The Cambridge Companion to the Age of Constantine offers students a comprehensive one-volume survey of this pivotal emperor and his times. Richly illustrated and designed as a readable survey accessible to all audiences, it also achieves a level of scholarly sophistication and a freshness of interpretation that will be welcomed by the experts.
If you click through to Amazon, you can access the table of contents to this collection.
