This second work from Brian Salas continues his brilliant look into the Byzantine empire and the societies that were affected by its great power. The author presents a compelling case that blows apart previous misconceptions that the arrival of Islam in the city of Jerash led to a devastating downfall. Both academic and approachable, this book is highly recommended (and well-edited, too).
