 Powell's Books - The Balkans Since 1453 by
The book has two basic goals: to demonstrate the centrality of the Balkans to European and world history, and to synthesize and make more available monographic and periodical literature published on the Balkans after World War I. In this edition, Stavrianos' (emeritus, history, Northwestern University) work is introduced by Traian Stoianovich (emeritus, history, Rutgers U.).
The Balkans Since 1453 has not only stood the test of time but remains the defining general work in the study of Balkan civilization.
It provides readers with a view of time and space from a Balkan perspective but also with a vision of how to look at other regions of the world, and how to perceive the world itself as a unit composed of diverse spatial, temporal, and cultural components.

 The Fall of Constantinople in 1453
One of the major explanations for the fall of Constantinople in the fatal 1453 is viewing it from the angle of the political consequences of the Latin Conquest and fall of the city in 1204.
Another significant factor that contributed to the downfall of Constantinople was the incapabilty of the church to acceptt a union with the West.
A significant reason for the victory of the Ottomans in 1453 was the use of cannons or employing the gunpowder against the strength of the walls.

Runciman shows that the fall of Constantinople to the Turks on May 29, 1453 (550 years ago today!) was both inevitable and of mostly marginal historical significance (except, of course, to the people of the city itself).
Beginning with the Ottoman advance into Europe in the later 14th century, and ultimately ending with the City's capture in 1453, he weaves a story that is both historically accurate as well as emotionally moving.
The Eastern Empire in 1453 was a mere shadow of its once glorious self.
