By 1400, the once-mighty Byzantine Empire stood on the verge of destruction. This book explores individual stories of diplomatic manoeuvres, covert defiance, and sheer luck against a backdrop of major historical currents, and traces Byzantium's legacy through those emigrants and refugees who reached and influenced Italy, Russia, and beyond.

Review:

A welcome and highly readable treatment of one of the most important events in world history a fine work of scholarship. [Jonathan Harris] handles his subject with narrative momentum and descriptive flair, and he never loses sight of the humanity involved in these twilight years of a once great empire.' --Norman Housley, author of 'Fighting for the Cross'
