Review:

"This book belongs in all university libraries." (CHOICE, September 2009)

"This book is ... '[A] highly informed and enjoyable resource for students and interested general readers.' ... H. and T.'s collection of essays does offer is a synthesis of recent scholarship and current trends that will reward both the general and the specialized reader as well as stimulate further discussion." (The Classical Journal, November 2009)

"All in all this volume is certainly to be welcomed. At an affordable price it offers coverage of a comprehensive range of topics, with the 'big names' well represented among the contributors." (Scholia Reviews, 2009)

From the Back Cover:

Alexander the Great has been studied and reinterpreted in every culture, from the great thinkers of the Hellenistic age to twenty-first century Hollywood. Alexander the Great: A New History offers an innovative treatment of one of history's most famous figures.

Bringing together leading experts in the field, this book combines traditional scholarship with contemporary research to examine a number of intriguing subjects in Alexander studies. The volume explores such diverse topics as Alexander's religious views, his entourage during his campaign East, his sexuality, the influence of his legacy, and later representations in art and cinema. Reappraisals of the Macedonian army and Macedonian relations with the Greeks complement these new approaches to Alexander's reign.
