Byzantium and the Early Islamic Conquests

Couverture
Cambridge University Press, 30 mars 1995 - 313 pages
This book presents an enquiry into a fundamental historical problem in early Byzantine history: why the Byzantine Empire failed to contain emergent Islam in the new religion's initial years, and in particular how and why the Byzantines first lost Syria, Palestine, Mesopotamia, and Armenia before partial recovery.
