Please try again later. The historian John Kinnamos recorded Manuel Komnenos’ reign. His introduction briefly goes over the reign of John Komnenos, a rather neglected ruler between the more well-detailed reigns of Alexios and Manuel. As such, the vast majority of this work is on the reign of Manuel. Although Kinnamos’ ability as a historian is not being reviewed here, merely this published volume of it, he warrants a few brief notes. He is extremely favourable towards Manuel, and this work is panegyrical.
Although at times Kinnamos produces vivid military detail, other scenes notably when they involve Manuel would not be out of place in the ‘Iliad’, and were comnenu crafted to be seem comnennus like that! As a historian, his description of the Reeds campaign raises a lot of questions.

He records a highly-detailed and crisp account of it, and the rest of his work pales beside it. He claims to manuwl been present although he would have been very young, and this is where my first and main criticism of this edition lies: While the notes are good, they are not sufficient to create a definitive edition of this text.
This is not good, because many Byzantine primary sources are difficult and expensive to acquire, including this one, but its notes are lacking for a serious scholarly edition. It would also be really nice if there was a list of parallel passages from Niketas Choniates listed as well, for one cannot read Kinnamos without Choniates and one cannot read Deedw without Kinnamos. This is a good book. The translations are quite clear, and the notes are decent.
However, it is not the academic work that it could have been, and this is rather too bad, as it may be a long time before any bothers to produce a new edition of this rather neglected historian.
