5.0 out of 5 stars Byzantium: An Illustrated History, March 6, 2005
I found this book to be compelling as well as interesting, especially since the author spends enough time to highlight the more personal sides of the major characters of the Byzantine Empire. Knowing the dates and places may be important but understanding "why" the events took place is even more important in the continuing study of mankind. The author does a wonderful job of explaining the nuances of the men and women who have made the Byzantium Empire such a compelling study still today.

The only thing that could make this a better book is if there were more of it.
