Abstract

(p. 106). A concise discussion of the `blue' and `green' circus factions in the age of Justinian (pp. 121-3) shows how historians have offered a wide variety of interpretations of the phenomenon, but also how difficult it still is to arrive at a meaningful conclusion on the issue. A final section on Byzantine culture after the fall of Constantinople in 1453 contains a plea for the relevance of Byzantine studies as a `valuable mirror for the West' (p. 356). At the very least this volume will advance its author's cause by providing an eminently readable survey of a broad, complex and often under-appreciated topic.
