John Norwich is a great writer The stories he told in this book are engaging for several reasons He freuently helped the reader review past events and made comparisons and reasonable analysis eg Originally established by Constantine the Great at the time of his foundation of the city it had been largely rebuilt by Justinian but that was nearly three hundred years before and Theophilus was probably well justified in deciding that alterations and improvements were long overdue p44 Occasionally these events occurred well out of the historical scope he was dealing with or fast forward to later time eg Normans of south Italy under their leader Robert Guiscard the most dazzling military adventurer between Julius Caesar and Napoleon p307 I consider these digressions scattered throughout the book necessary and pedagogically beneficial Secondly his freuent use of the most or the first perks up the spirit of the reader who might feel boredom in reading certain passages But of course his superlatives in subjective evaluation may not always be generally accepted by scholars or readers eg the Prince of Kiev was baptized by the local bishop in what was perhaps the most fateful religious ceremony in Russian history in referring to Vladimir s scout for a religion for his people and adoption of Christianity p245 or Constantine X Ducas arguably the most disastrous ruler ever p338A non specialist may find the book stimulating due to the author s selection of historical facts As other reviewers pointed out the writing is in Thomas Carlyle s great hero tradition focusing on political figures such as emperors and military generals in preference to the ordinary people and largely brushing aside other aspects of the rich history of Byzantium such as economy science art The truth is that an average reader not in the profession of historical research is greatly interested in story telling especially that of dynastic changes and the historical figures involved as opposed to analysis of economy or science and technology As to the history of the people as for example in Howard Zinn s tradition that would indeed be a necessary supplement for the completeness of the picture if not for political correctness But for Mr Norwich it would be beyond the scope of his project and probably be a tall order for any writer to create an eually engaging narrative under the condition of scarcity of extant documents that help complete stories of an ordinary personMr Norwich is probably a good scholar or at least has a bent for serious scholarship The book is strictly kept within the boundary of historical non fiction In case of insufficient primary sources and conflicting views of modern historians on a certain event he readily acknowledged it and presented different versions of the story in the text instead of choosing the most dramatic one just to attract readers I believe Mr Norwich is very fluent in French and Russian as that s on his academic degree at Oxford too probably in Latin as well judging by the sources he used His freuent citation of modern scholars suggests that he kept abreast of the research as of the time of his writing and in case of disagreement he posited his own theory as impartial as possible eg he disagrees with Prof Bury who suggests that Michael V has been unfairly maligned pp1041 The list of Emperors with reigning years and other appendices at the end greatly help us avoid mixing up the characters many of whom are namesakes The year number on the upper right corner of each odd numbered page is a wonderful invention you can immediately find out what year the event described on this page occurred in or what pages talk about the events of a given year The book uses foot notes instead of end notes to minimize interruption in reading The book is well indexed and Google Books is authorized for snippet view so you can easily search with keywords
