Impressive introduction into the Byzantine peoples 14 April 2008
By Steven A. Beaber - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I picked up this book solely for the fact that it was a Byzantine book. I was not disappointed with the content, however. The book covers the following:
The poor:
The peasantry:
The Soldiers:
The Teachers:
Women:
Entrepreneurs:
Bishops:
Saints:
Emperors:
Functionaries:

The book also explains what sources were used and why when describing how these people lived. It does a good job contrasting these groups to their western and Islamic eastern counterparts. It offers a broad view of each group while also focusing in on particular time periods. The Book also has several authors so getting bogged down in a certain authors style is unlikely to happen and it give a chance to compare styles. I were to teach an introduction in Byzantine Studies, or an Overview course this book would be on my list.
