9780020327875: From Alexander to Cleopatra: The Hellenistic World

"The most widely read ancient historian of recent years ... With his vast erudition, penetrating insights and an engaging literary style, Grant communicates well with scholar and layman alike." -- San Diego Union. In this book the author "provides the most comprehensive interpretation of the Hellenistic Age yet. Beginning with the death of Alexander the Great in 323 B.C. and ending with Cleopatra, [the book] uncovers "the brilliat, crowded, lively age" of those Greeks living in the three centuries following the "classical epoch." It was aperiod remarkable for its advances in science, philosophy, medicine, literature, politics, and the arts. While Hellenistic communities eventually fell under Roman control, many of their ideas and institutions, Grant shows, survived as permanent features of the centuries to come. Vibrant, engaging, and authoratative, From Aleandra to Cleopatra illuminates one of the most fruitful chapters in the history of ancient Greece. See also his "The Rise of the Greeks".
