Within the span of thirteen years, Alexander the Great changed the faceof the world more decisively and with more long-lasting effects thanany other statesman has ever done. It is therefore no surprise thatthere has been, and still is, so much debate about both his personalityand his achievement. The great merit of Professor Hammond's biographyis that, with impressive mastery of the evidence, he sets the recordstraight between the extremes of romantic hero worship on the one handand scholarly demolition on the other. Based on his detailed knowledgeof the literarysources and on his own experience of warfare inAlexander's native country, Professor Hammond presents a compellingpicture of Alexander in his public life as king, commander andstatesman. This revised biography includes new material and extensivereference to literary sources.
Professor Hammond's other works include "The History of Macedonia" and"Studies in Greek History." He also collaborated on "The OxfordClassical Dictionary" and "The Cambridge Ancient History."
