Full description for Warfare, State and Society in the Byzantine World
This work offers a comprehensive study of warfare and the Byzantine army in the social context. It deals with Byzantine attitudes to warfare, the effects of war on society as a whole both culturally and physically, as well as relationships between soldiers, leaders and society. It also examines the strategic situation of the empire and the state's response to external military pressures in the period from the late 6th-century to the late 12th-century. The strategic geography of the empire, communications, logistics, resources and manpower are also examined, as well as the army's strategic and tactical administrative evolution.
