This exciting new volume is an indispensable guide for undergraduates to the study of Alexander the Great, showing the problems of the ancient source material, and making it clear that there is no single approach to be taken.
The eleven thematic chapters contain a broad selection of the most significant published articles about Alexander, examining the main areas of debate and discussion:
Alexander and the Greeks
Alexander and Asia
Alexander, India and the Final Years
Alexander as General
Alexander and "The unity of Mankind"
Alexander and Deification
Alexander and Conspiracies
Alexander: The 'Great'?
The Reader has the distinctive feature of translating a substantial number of the more inaccessible primary sources; each chapter is also prefaced with a succinct introduction to the topic under consideration.
