It's history LITE. Nicely,entertainingly written. But a lot of sweeping statements wth few details, no footnotes. The best part was the chronological chart at the end which shows Byzantine history alongside Western European, Asian, and South/Latin American history during the same time periods. Bravo!
A decent short history of the Byzantine Empire giving an overview and some of the flavor of the empire for elementary/middle school students. We read this as part of my son's history curriculum.
