SummaryAdd a Summary
Justiniian's Flea is a substantial political, social, religious, cultural, economic and dynastic history of the sixth century, focusing on the Byzantine empire in Constantinople, but including the various, although more brief, profiles of the dominant cultures of the era. The main premise is the influence of the the Bubonic plague (carried by the fleas of rats, hence the title) on all of these factors. This book highlights the end of the "Roman" era and the shift in power to an emerging Europe, China and later Muslim dominance.
