    In AD 476 the Roman Empire fell - or rather, its western half did. Its eastern half, which would come to be known as the Byzantine Empire, would endure and often flourish for another 11 centuries. Though its capital would move to Constantinople, its citizens referred to themselves as Roman for the entire duration of the empire's existence.

    Joseph M. Dolan says: "Excellent Book about Little Known History"
    "as good as the renown podast"
    Overall

    Lars brownsworth has gained accolades for his podcast on the same subject. Both of these are oustanding and opened my eyes to an historical subject that was formerly unknown to me and many others. The downside is that fans of the podcast (who I suspect will be the major audiance) will find relatively little new in this book, so whilst I recommend either thoroughly, I cannot really recommend both.
