John H. Rosser is a faculty member of the Department of History at Boston College. He has been active in Byzantine archaeology and field research and has written numerous articles and an edited volume on Byzantium.From Library Journal:
Rosser (history, Boston Coll.), an active participant in field research related to Byzantine archaeology, begins this volume with a chronology that summarizes the history of Byzantium from its beginnings in 324 C.E. to the fall of its last outpost in 1461. This is followed by an introduction that provides concise overviews of Byzantine civilization. The dictionary proper covers people, events, and important aspects of Byzantine culture, such as art and economics, with a useful bibliography wrapping up the text. While the present volume cannot compete in scale with the three-volume Oxford Dictionary of Byzantium (LJ 8/91), it does possess the advantage of access to the latest archaeological discoveries and the coherence of approach that comes from its compilation by a single author. This work is thus highly recommended for public and academic libraries that did not purchase the Oxford workARobert J. Andrews, Duluth P.L., MN
