5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book., 8 May 2009
By 
S. V. Bazinas (Vienna, Austria) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
"The Byzantines" correct many errors about a State that had a significant impact on all its neighbours and in particular Western Europe, the Slavic world and Islam. It explains very well the reasons why none of these worlds can be clearly understood without a good understanding of the Eastern Roman Empire, which lived as a State until 1453 and still lives as a civilization in several parts of the world. As the book explains, the term "Byzantium" is a neologism invented in the 17th century and the citizens of that State called themeselves Romans. Their neighbours to the East called them and still call them Romans. So the question is why did Western historians give them a different name. The reader of the book will find answers to this question.The Byzantines (Peoples of Europe) (The Peoples of Europe)

5.0 out of 5 stars A Timely Reminder, 29 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Byzantines (The Peoples of Europe) (Paperback)
A complex history story is given a clear framework, whilst the role of the Byzantine peoples in the development of the Mediterranean region and Western Europe is a timely reminder of how Eurocentric our history syllabus is in the UK.

Informative and enjoyable.
