Byzantium. A History. 2000

By Peter Haldon. Densly written and very informativ, but hard to keep track. Definitely not a snooze-book. It gives a detailed overview on byzantine history, religion, power, art and culture, it's peoples and organisation of the state. There's not much military history in there. But it helps to get the feel for the eastroman world.
