Teised raamatud teemal:
This introduction to the Byzantine civilisation provides a guide for those who know nothing or little about the history of Byzantium. Spanning a vast period from the Emperor Constantine in AD 306 to the fall of Constantinople in 1453, the book is structured around a chronological political history although social, economic and cultural issues are addressed throughout. More detailed studies of particular people, events or issues are dealt with in 53 'boxes'. The main alterations in the second edition involve giving greater space to social and economic themes, including more localised case studies and more on archaeological evidence. An excellent well-written study which will be useful and interesting to students and those who like to read about medieval history.

Arvustused

?I welcome this expanded second edition of Timothy Gregory's useful introduction to the growing field for Byzantine studies. It will be a great help to students and teachers, especially for its greater coverage of archaeology and its guides to web resources and primary sources in translation.? Averil Cameron, University of Oxford ?Professor Gregory?s deep knowledge of archaeology, historical geography, and the original Greek sources infuses his lucid history of Byzantium with insights into the unexpected connections between the medieval and modern world.? Linda Jones Hall, St. Mary's College of Maryland "Gregory?s book is the only proper textbook for Byzantine history. It is also an admirable scholarly survey which brings to bear Gregory?s substantial experience as an archaeologist and historian on the rich history of the Byzantine East." William Caraher, University of North Dakota ?Gregory?s work presents in a concrete and original way the political history, the institutions, the art, the architecture and the socioeconomic factors that shaped the often misunderstood Byzantine Empire. The book appeals to the academic as well as to the general public.? Taxiarchis Kolias, University of Athens , and The National Hellenic Research Foundation
