"A major contribution to the understanding of Carolingian policies in the east."—Speculum

"Deserves to be widely read as a major contribution to a comparatively neglected area of ninth-century history."—History

Assembles evidence from Frankish, Moravian, and Byzantine documents; from archaeological finds; and details of the terrain to buttress the view that the center of the Slavic Moravian empire was in what is now Serbia, much farther southeast than is usually thought. This interpretation explains how the Franks managed otherwise inexplicable military successes against the Moravians.

Charles R. Bowlus is Emeritus Professor of History at the University of Arkansas, Little Rock.
