"Leonora Neville’s Byzantine Gender builds from existing scholarship, including her own exceptional contributions to this still-emerging subfield. It is among the first efforts to epitomize the issue of gender for non-specialists, both those who are outsiders to the study of Byzantine civilization, and those who consider themselves Byzantinists but are unfamiliar with scholarship and methods that center on questions of gender. Though it is increasingly the norm for new publications to be accessed digitally, Byzantine Gender merits reading in print because its tone is conveyed in part through the format of the book, a slim, pocket-sized soft cover that fits in the palm of the hand. Like the Arc Humanities series generally, it presents itself as easily digestible and approachable, yet delivers serious engagement and rigorous thinking."
