This book is based on an in-depth conversation between Howard Burton and Maria Mavroudi, Professor of History at UC Berkeley. Maria Mavroudi specializes in the study of the Byzantine Empire and this wide-ranging conversation explores her extensive research on the Byzantine Empire and how it has repeatedly been undervalued by historians despite its having been a military and cultural powerhouse for more than a millennium.

This carefully-edited book includes an introduction, Beyond the High-School Narrative, and questions for discussion at the end of each chapter:

I. Becoming A Byzantinist - Inspiration and motivation

II. Historical Background - Byzantine beginnings

III. The High-School Narrative - History as a cultural mirror

IV. Recovering Truth - A never-ending goal

V. Building Knowledge - Standing on the shoulders of giants

VI. Annotated Discoveries - Leo the Mathematician, for example

VII. A Translational Discovery - From Arabic to Greek, surprisingly

VIII. Arrows of Causality - Consequential greatness

IX. Decline - A matter of opinion?

X. Extracting Meaning - Interpreting human experiences

XI. Ever-Moving Targets - Arab-Greek bilingualism and its implications
