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.

Review: Alexander the Great

Avis d'utilisateur  - Jodi - Goodreads

This book got me through my ancient history module on Alexander. It is fantastic. There is no book more comprehensive and it gives a step by step chronological order to his life which is rare. Robin Lane Fox is a wonderful classical author and i really hope he continues writing. Consulter l'avis complet
