Kardaras explores relations between the Byzantine Empire and the Avar Khaganate during the khaganate's existence from 568 to 796 CE. His topics include the image of the Avars in Byzantium, Justin II's policy and the establishment of the Avar Khaganate, the Byzantine counter-attack in the Balkans, the settlement of the Croats and the Serbs in the Balkans, Christian symbols in the Avar Khaganate, possible channels of communication between Byzantium and the Avars after 626, and the "Manner of the Avars" in the Strategikon.
