This study, centred around the reign of the usurping Emperor Romanus Lecapenus, was originally published in 1929, reissued in 1963, and has been out of print for several years. It contributed to the revival of interest in Byzantine studies at that time, and has since remained one of the most authoritative and readable accounts of the period.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'A remarkably able book ... A fine piece of work - in every respect a most valuable contribution to the history of a difficult period.' New Statesman
'Deep learning and taste and skill in its presentation have combined to produce a work which is a credit to Cambridge scholarship and history.' The Times
'A very readable book, extraordinarily full of detail yet never dull. It seems to me to be a model of what such books should be.' Annual Bulletin of Historical Literature
'The author has certainly provided for this hitherto neglected emperor his 'proper mansion in history'.' English Historical Review
