Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The 25 papers widen the conventional studies of the Byzantine capital from the walled city itself to the European and Asian hinterlands, discussing such aspects as the products of the land, its administration, the inhabitants, manufacturing and export, communications between the capital and the outlying territories, cultural and artistic manifestations, and the role of the sacred. Ten of the papers are in French. Distributed in the US by Ashgate. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
