Has any ancient figure captivated the imagination of people over the centuries so much as Alexander the Great? In less than a decade he created an empire stretching across much of the Near East as far as India, which led to Greek culture becoming dominant in much of this region for a millennium. Here, an international team of experts clearly explains the life and career of one of the most significant figures in world history. They introduce key themes of his campaign as well as describing aspects of his court and government and exploring the very different natures of his engagements with the various peoples he encountered and their responses to him. The reader is also introduced to the key sources, including the more important fragmentary historians, especially Ptolemy, Aristobulus and Clitarchus, with their different perspectives. The book closes by considering how Alexander's image was manipulated in antiquity itself.

  •  
  • Offers a detailed survey of Alexander's career articulated principally in terms of the regions he conquered or with which he interacted in the course of his campaign
  • Singles out for special treatment a range of over-arching themes relating to Alexander's campaign
  • Pays special attention to ancient sources we depend on for knowledge of Alexander, their potential biases, and the different ways in which they present their portraits of him
