Description:
New book, 240 pages. King of Macedonia before he was twenty, Alexander went on to become the greatest conqueror of the ancient world, inspiring legends in his his lifetime and after his death. Every age has interpreted him to suit their own values; either as a ruthless destroyer who eliminated all who stood in his path, or as a far-sighted statesman pursuing a civilizing mission for the world. He has been condemned for sins that in his time were merits and credited with romantic nineteenth-century virtues which his own culture despised. After years of studying the Hellenistic world, this book peels off the layers of wishful thinking to reveal the real Alexander beneath. Re-examining the crucial episodes in his life: the murder of his father, Philip, in which he was implicated, the sacking of Thebes and his dying wishes, this enjoyable and wonderfully illustrated study places him in the rightful context of his times.
