Justinian and the Later Roman Empire
John W. Barker Jr.

The eastern half of the Roman Empire, economically the stronger, did not "fall" but continued almost intact, safe in the new capital of Constantinople. This empire is the subject of John Barker Jr.'s book and the central focus of his examination of questions of continuity and change.

"It is written in the clearest and liveliest of styles."
The American Historical Review

John W. Barker Jr. is professor emeritus of history at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.
