Robin Lane Fox's accessible and erudite life of Alexander the Great searches through the mass of conflicting evidence and legend to focus on the living actuality of the man and his experience--'It is tempting', he concludes, 'to see in Alexander the romantic's complex nature for the first time in Greek history.' Beautifully written perceptive and fluent, it is a superb example of historical scholarship and psychological insight.
