One of the best history books I have ever read. The amount of detail and information is astounding.

I didn’t read this one cover to cover, so I won’t give it a star rating. The writing was academic but not dry. I liked how the author went over different versions of history and explained why various accounts might differ. Sometimes he was repetitive, but overall it was an informative book.

I very much want to go back and finish this at some point, but I have to go through the Early Medieval Balkans first, for context. That's taking a bit longer than the library is willing to wait, so I have to return this and get it again when I have a bit more time on my hands. (I.e., when I retire. Hopefully before then.)

So I've managed to find this entire book online:

URL: https://www.press.umich.edu/pdf/97804...
(for later chapters, just change "ch1" to "chX" in the URL)

Alternatively, try this (although I personally prefer pdf format).

This is one of the only books I've found on the history of the medieval Balkans, so for me this is an exciting discovery :)
