Comprehensive in outline yet written for the general reader, the Byzantium trilogy can fill a gap that exists in most Western readers' awareness of their own heritage. We pass to the reviews: ''I am amazed by Lord Norwich's book. He is brilliant but not superficial, unflaggingly entertaining... This is popular history in the honorable sense in which Macaulay was a popular historian: an intellectual entertainment with a certain didactic edge... a sparkling single narrative with sharp observation of politics and personalities.'' -- Peter Levi, The Independent. ''Norwich is always on the lookout for the small but revealing details...the significant anecdote... the bizarre episode. All of this he recounts in a style that consistently entertains and sometimes sparkles, and with an unerring sense of what the modern Western reader needs to know. ''-- Jaroslav Pelikan, New York Times Book Review. Volume 2 of 2.
