 Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2004.03.08
Kaegi offers a meticulous narrative of Heraclius' seizure of power and the wars in the east as well as an almost comprehensive analysis of victories of Byzantine forces over the Persians and their failures in the wars against the Arabs.
The outline of their politics would provide the necessary background to Heraclius' reign, his coming to power, Byzantine-Persian relations etc. Though the previous publications of Kaegi provide a broader context of Heraclius' reign, this study is rather vague on this matter and the above-mentioned archeological advances are not evident.
This is obviously partly explained by the unbalanced politics of Heraclius (Kaegi writes about middle-easternization of the Empire under Heraclius) but also by the unbalanced interest of the author himself.
