"Every generation, and virtually every scholar has given the world a different Alexander - each one the product of the writer's time and cultural conditioning. This book places Alexander squarely in the only meaningful context, his own geographical and mental world." Waldemar Heckel, University of Calgary<!--end-->

Bryn Mawr Classical Review
