Lost to the West: The Forgotten Byzantine Empire That Rescued Western Civilization
Publish date: September 15th 2009
Pages no: 352
Edition language: English
Interesting, well-written, easy to understand beginner history of the Byzantine or Eastern Roman Empire from Constantine to the Fall of Constantinople covered in a series of vignettes of various emperors.
The book is basically a brief skim through of Byzantine history, but I must thank it a lot for getting me into Byzantine(Eastern Roman) and Ottoman history.
