About the Author

University of Durham, UK


'Recommended' -- Choice 'It was gratifying to find, at last, short authoritative surveys to which one can refer students on such essential Byzantine subjects ... It was also a delight to find chapters devoted to side issues which had always intrigued me ... Stephenson does not avoid the usual gripe about Byzantium being marginalised and misunderstood, but he gives it a sophisticated European twist. He and his team perhaps succeed better than previous gripers in showing why readers of the English Historical Review should have more time for Byzantine history.' - Paul Magdalino, Koc University, Turkey
