Description


Walter E. Kaegi, "Byzantium and the Early Islamic Conquests"
Cambridge University Press | 1992 | ISBN: 0521411726, 0521484553 | 327 pages | Djvu | 2,2 MB

This is a study of how and why the Byzantine empire lost many of its most valuable provinces to Islamic conquerors in the seventh century, provinces that included Syria, Palestine, Mesopotamia and Armenia. It investigates conditions on the eve of those conquests, mistakes in Byzantine policy toward the Muslims, the course of the military campaigns, and the problem of local official and civilian collaboration with the Muslims. It also seeks to explain how after some terrible losses the Byzantine government achieved some intellectual rationalization of its disasters and began the complex process of transforming and adapting its fiscal and military institutions and political controls in order to prevent further disintegration.
• Comprehensive study of the ‘difficult’ chapter in Byzantine history by a well-established and highly-respected figure in the writing of Byzantine military history
• Kaegi’s treatment is unique: he alone among scholars of the period has read the Arabic sources in depth, and the book will now become the definitive work on the subject
• In dealing with military activities in a much-discussed part of the world, there are links with both the Runciman-type of middle eastern/Byzantine history and with contemporary issues of domination and empire
