By 1400, the once-mighty Byzantine Empire stood on the verge of destruction. This book explores individual stories of diplomatic manoeuvres, covert defiance, and sheer luck against a backdrop of major historical currents, and traces Byzantium's legacy through those emigrants and refugees who reached and influenced Italy, Russia, and beyond.
