This introductory chapter justifies the study, outlines the modern research on which it is based, and notes its questioning of the authenticity of the ‘Germanic threat’. Also, against a background of continuing fierce debate over the writing of ancient ethnic history, it explains the book's use of key-terms such as ‘Alamannic’ and ‘Germanic’.

Keywords:   Alamannic, ancient ethnic history, Germanic threat
