    A reviewer

    I own this book because it was one of the sources used to design the historical wargame Cataphract, published a good six or seven years ago by GMT Games. The time period (sixth century) interested me, as I really had not had any exposure to it prior to playing the game. You don't really learn much about this period in high school, I can tell you that. The book is organized by topic, rather than chronologically. It starts with an overview of relations between the Empire and Persia, including a high-level treatment of their conflicts, and then it starts a general pattern of discussing warfare in one chapter and then domestic matters in another chapter. There are many wars to discuss, but I honestly found the chapters on domestic matters, whether political or religious, more interesting. They discuss various heresies (well, according to us Christians, anyway) in this book that I had never heard about before, most likely because the later Roman emperors did a good job of hunting them down and killing them. It also seems like the overall bureaucracy was a hopeless, inefficient mess, thus explaining why we refer to a highly complex and mind-numbing organization as being 'byzantine,' after Byzantium, the capital of the Easter Roman empire. It really is amazing that they accomplished as much as they did, since the system was set up to fight itself at every turn. In summary, this book is a good high-level survey of the Eastern Roman Empire. This volume focuses heavily on Justinian, the best known and most active of the emperors, but has enough information on other topics to be a good entry point to the period for the non-specialist.
