Added February 6 2015 with review of Lost To The West.

Books and Writers



This section really compliments the sections on Russia, Eastern Europe and Military History, and will include books that are either too broad for or totally outside those sections. Thus books on Byzantium may include elements of military history and dealings with Russia and Eastern Europe, but also have something to say about the Empire's economics.

This will be an occasionally updated section, but I hope readers will find some items of interest.


Lost To The West: The Forgotten Byzantine Empire That Rescued Western Civilization – a brief but readable and informative history of Byzantium, from Diocletian's late Roman reforms to the fall of Constantinople.
