Billy's Book 83: The New Roman Empire

Here's a new history book -- about old stuff. The New Roman Empire is about what is commonly known today as the Byzantine Empire. Do you know what it was called in its day? Romania, just like the first part of the Roman Empire. I learned about this book because the author, Anthony Kaldellis, is a frequent guest on a podcast I've been following for a while, The History of Byzantium, which picks up where another podcast, The History of Rome, ends. I enjoy them both immensely.

Thanks to Nancy for the book. But if you don't get it for Christmas, support your local library!
