My latest book, The Byzantine Hellene: The Life of Emperor Theodore Laskaris and Byzantium in the Thirteenth Century (Cambridge, 2019), takes advantage of a unique body of autobiographical sources and the genre of historical biography in order to reconstruct the the life and thought world of the reforming ruler, original philosopher, and social commentator Theodore II Laskaris (1221/22-1258). Depicted on the book cover is the palace in Nymphaion (Kemalpaşa), where Theodore Laskaris spent the winter and springs seasons—studying, writing, witnessing debates with Latin philosophers, and preparing for military campaigns. For a pubilsher's discount on this book valid until March 2020, please download the flier.
