This short and accessible history, primarily aimed at those unfamiliar with the subject, traces the development of Byzantium from AD 285 until its fall in 1453. Treadgold demonstrates that Byzantium's remarkable cycle of decline and recovery was largely due to the character of individual emperors and inherent weaknesses in the empire's structure. Each narrative chapter concludes with discussions of Byzantium's society and culture during six distinctive chronological periods.
