Anmeldelser

«A brilliant reinvestigation of a millennium and more of Byzantine History; the first complete treatment for a generation drawing on impeccable scholarship and offering so many new insights.»

Peter Heather, author of Christendom: The Triumph of a Religion, AD 300-1300

«Kaldellis's new narrative history of the medieval eastern Roman ('Byzantine') empire offers a highly readable, insightful, and provocative interpretation of one of the longest-lived state formations in the historical record. How and why it lasted so long lies at the heart of the book and the answers offered will challenge many long-held assumptions about the eastern Roman world and the civilization it embodied.»

John F. Haldon, author of The Empire that Would Not Die: The Paradox of Eastern Roman Survival, 640-

«A compelling and authoritative overview of a millennial empire, filled with unfamiliar and revealing details, that shows how its initial deep foundations enabled Byzantium's extraordinary longevity. Kaldellis's combination of structural analysis, mastery of original sources, and admirable synthesis of challenging issues make this a brilliant guide.»

Judith Herrin, author of Ravenna: Capital of Empire, Crucible of Europe

«Utilizing an impressive scope of recent research, Kaldellis refutes older views of the Roman state as despotic. Forty-two of 91 emperors may have come to power through violence, but the shared assumptions of subjects and rulers conferred on it lasting endurance... Outstanding in every aspect.»

Library Journal

«No one would describe this massive work as light reading, but I was struck by how almost every page offered a new insight or a fascinating fact. Any reader with an abiding interest in the subject will find this book to be a worthwhile investment.»

Mike Markowitz, The NYMAS Review

«The book includes fifteen well-executed and detailed maps, and numerous monochrome photographs, including coins, manuscript illustrations, works of art, and surviving buildings from the Empire's long history...Any reader with an abiding interest in the subject will find this book to be a worthwhile investment.»

Mike Markowitz, The NYMAS Review: A Publication of The New York Military Affairs Symposium

«The most important book about the history of Western civilization published this year-and for many years-is Anthony Kaldellis' magnum opus, The New Roman Empire: A History of Byzantium.»

Hadley Arkes, Claremont Review of Books

«The author does the job well, I believe, and needs to be taken seriously.»

Usman Butt, Middle East Monitor

«[Kaldellis'] book is a tremendous achievement of labour, scholarship and historiographical judgment. It will surely become the new standard work on its subject, not to mention a deserving candidate for book prizes. The many maps of changing political boundaries are among the best I have come across.»

Tony Spawforth, Classics for All

«The New Roman Empire provides an astonishingly detailed and authoritative history of the Eastern Roman Empire, in which the author shows a remarkable depth of knowledge.»

Vesa Oittinen, The Times Literary Supplement

«The New Roman Empire provides provides an astonishingly detailed and authoritative history of the Eastern Roman Empire, in which the author shows a remarkable depth of knowledge...this study is a remarkable and highly readable achievement.»

Nicholas Morton, Times Literary Supplement

«This very readable text summarizes 1,153 years of the Eastern Roman Empire, also known as the Byzantine Empire. Recommended.»

Choice

«The Eastern Roman Empire, which, thanks to innovative institutions and a bottomless strategic playbook, endured beyond the fall of the West in 476 and right to the cusp of Early Modernity. It is this story, that Professor Anthony Kaldellis elegantly recounts in The New Roman Empire: A History of Byzantium... It is high time that Byzantium received its flowers. Kaldellis' account certainly ensures this, while also staking a claim to the modern meaning of 'Byzantine.'»

Medievalists.net

«Kaldellis is without doubt one of the most original and productive scholars currently working in the field of Byzantine studies... [He] should be commended for having written a deeply impressive book, enriched in particular by his mastery of the literary sources. The New Roman Empire provides an excellent introduction to the history of Byzantium for the general reader, while also giving specialists much to ponder and think about.»

Peter Sarris, Englesberg Ideas
