Summary

The studies included in this latest volume by Professor Jacoby deal with demographic, social, economic and institutional issues in the history of Byzantium and Latin Romania (the Byzantine territories conquered by the Latins after the Fourth Crusade), as well as with Mediterranean trade between the 10th and the 15th century. Special attention is devoted to the following subjects: migration from Muslim countries and the West into the Empire and, after the Fourth Crusade, into former Byzantine territories; the social and economic impact of the encounter between Greeks, Jews and Westerners in Constantinople, Asia Minor and Greece; institutional and economic continuity and change in Latin Romania; trade and shipping between Byzantium, Egypt and the major Italian maritime cities; and last, to silk in Byzantium and the Mediterranean: raw materials and textiles, production and trade.
