    PDF songuarachando.co.uk ó Ghost Empire Kindle µ ghost book, empire book, Ghost Empire EpubThis digest of 1000 years has resolved some uestions for which answers were only vague in my mind Was Constantinople still part of the Roman Empire when it fell to the Ottomans? Why does the Catholic Church have a separate “Orthodox” church? What anything about the Crusades attack on Christian Constantinople? Richard Fidler does a big job in cutting through the labyrinth byzantine may be the descriptive term but I’ve learned it is a pejorative to present the story about which

    PDF songuarachando.co.uk ó Ghost Empire Kindle µ ghost book, empire book, Ghost Empire EpubRichard Fidler is careful to point out that he’s not a historian but a history lover He is a marvellous story teller though He takes us on a roller coaster of a ride telling the history of The Byzantine Empire And what a story from the glory days with Constantinople flourishing as the centre of the empire through the rise and fall of civilisations through the new ideas the violence and the decay And embedded in this descriptions of the city of Constantinople as it was and Istanbul as it is todayAlthough he has provided a careful bibliography Fidler has also delighted the reader with little anecdotes rumours rather than history but adding so much colour to his story The little cameos of some of the main players are fascinating Interwoven with this is the relationship between Richard and his teenage son Joe growing closer together as they explore the history of a lost civilisationThis is a marvellous book telling not just the history of the Byzantine empire but t

    PDF songuarachando.co.uk ó Ghost Empire Kindle µ ghost book, empire book, Ghost Empire EpubWhat a challenge To condense the massive history of Byzantium from 657 BC 1453AD in readable accessible prose that shares a deep love of history Richard Fidler begins with the disclosure I learnt nothing about Byzantium in school While I loved both Ancient and Modern History in school I retained only sketchy knowledge of the story of Constantinople I revelled in awe inspiring recognitions on first visiting the Colosseum Pantheon and numerous cathedrals during seven years in Europe but never travelled so far east as IstanbulThis book might be tossed aside as boring history if Fidler had not inserted the human touch he counterpoints the past with the present and shares personal insights of son Joe on his rite of passage travels He agonises when Joe is slow to board a tram and left behind on the platfor

    PDF songuarachando.co.uk ó Ghost Empire Kindle µ ghost book, empire book, Ghost Empire EpubI began this book thinking I needed a good overview of Byzantine history which I've read about mainly as a student of western medieval history the Crusades and early Christian history generally As it turned out 35 years of studying that background actually gave me a pretty good insight into the Eastern Empire but Fidler's easy going narrative was worth the price of admission anywayThat's partly because of his conversational style his comedian's eye for amusing anecdotes and uirky details and particularly the way he used the story of his trip to Istanbul with his teenage son Joe as a frame narrative Telling a connected series of stories within the frame of a tale about a journey has a long pedigree in English Geoffrey Chaucer used it to good effect in The Canterbury Tales 600 years ago after all But Filder's story of his father and son holiday adds an intimate and humanising dimension to what could otherwise be a seuence of palace coups and
