History of the Byzantine Empire, 324–1453, Volume II
Second English Edition
Alexander A. Vasiliev

“Vasiliev’s survey of Byzantine history is unique in the field. It is complete, including a sketch of literature and art for each period, while all other works of the kind, even the most recent, either are restricted to a shorter time, or neglect some side of eastern civilization. . . . This widely known and highly prized History of the Byzantine Empire needs not the commendation of any reviewer. Written originally in Russian, it has been turned into English, French, Spanish, and Turkish. It has always been a favorite with students.”
The Catholic Historical Review
