The History Today Podcast: February 1st

Jonathan Harris examines the relationship between the Byzantine Empire and the Muslim Abbasid caliphate, and discovers that, in spite of being at war for nearly three centuries, they shared several common bonds.

Jonathan's work is explored further in his essay, Best of Enemies, in the February issue of History Today, which is out now.
