The Byzantine Empire 1025-1204: A Political History (2nd Edition)
"Excellent (but very dense) history of Byzantium from the death of Basil II to the fall of Constantinople"
History of the Byzantine State
"Too important for historiographical purposes to not make the list."
Byzantium and the Crusades (Crusader Worlds)
"Excellent survey from the Byzantine perspective."
Alexios 1 Komnenos: Papers of the Second Belfast Byzantine International Colloquium, 14-16 April 1989 (Belfast Byzantine Texts & Translations)
"A series of essays on the life and empire of Alexios I Komnenos."
Anna Komnene and Her Times (Garland Medieval Casebooks)
"Useful collection of essays on dealing with the Alexiad's author."
Anna Comnena a Study (Oxford Reprints)
"An old, but useful study of Anna Komnene's 'Alexiad'."
The Empire of Manuel I Komnenos, 1143-1180
"An absolute masterpiece on Manuel I Komnenos and his empire."
Deeds of John and Manuel Comnenus
"A history of the reigns of John and Manuel Komnenos."
O City of Byzantium: Annals of Niketas Choniates (Byzantine Texts in Translation)
"A major history of the reigns of John and Manuel Komnenos, as well as the later Komnenoi and the Angeloi down to the fall of Constantinople in 1204 to the crusaders."
