Review Luttwak's 'The Grand Strategy of the Byzantine Empire'

Here is a review of the book ‘The Grand Strategy of the Byzantine Empire,’ by Edward N. Luttwak.

Luttwak is also known for his book ‘The Grand Strategy of the Roman Empire,’ which started a fierce and still ongoing scientific debate on the nature of Roman Imperial expansion from the first century onwards.

The review is written by the Dutch historian Jona Lendering, and is published on his blog. You can read the review here.
