This book evaluates the life and empire of the pivotal yet controversial Byzantine emperor Heraclius (ad. 610-641), a contemporary of the Prophet Muhammad. His stormy war-torn reign is critical for understanding the background to fundamental changes in the Balkans and the Middle East, including the emergence of Islam. Heraclius' skills enabled him to capture and recapture important territory, including Jerusalem, Syria and Egypt. Yet, they proved to be of little value when he confronted early Islamic conquests.
"...a good, solid work on a much studied, and much misunderstood, period in Byzantine history, and should find its way immediately onto graduate reading lists." Military History
"This study constitutes an excellent source for students and specialists interested in Byzantine and later Roman history. Heraclius, Emperor of Byzantium will also enhance readers' knowledge of the Muslim-Arabic expansion into Middle Eastern territory." History
"...Prof. Kaegi's work breaks considerable new ground by refuting many old, generally superficial views of Heraclius, while putting his considerable achievements firmly into the political, social, cultural, and military frame-work of his times." New York Military Affairs Symposium Review
"A meticulous narrative." Bryn Mawr Classical Review
"Kaegi's expertise in the analysis of military campaigns shines through on numerous occasions, well supported by good maps, plans and photographs." The Medieval Review
"...a bold endeavor...it will require a heroic scholarly effort to produce a better account." American Historical Review
"Kaegi has certainly achieved his goal of superseding Andrewas Strato's narrative of the reign." - Speculum Mark Whittow, St. Peter's College, Oxford
"This subtly argued monograph will contribute importantly to the discussion of late Carolingian politics" - Speculum Hans Hummer, Wayne State University
