Review quote

"This book opens up the field effectively to further work and manages to marshal together a great range of types of sources from a daunting chronological spread."-"The Medieval Review ""Byzantine Empresses is a useful and important book."-Cloelia "This was a book waiting to be written. . . . Overall, this is an unusual case of a book being as good as its blurb claims. It is not the last word on everything, but is often the first one, a great achievement."-Barry Baldwin, University of Calgary, June 1999
