The reign of Alexander the Great of Macedon 336 323 BC witnessed the military conuest of the Persian Empire by the Macedonian army the physical transit of the known world from the Danube to the Indus and the beginnings of the mass migration which was to expand the horizons of hellenism far into the Near East In this book Professor Bosworth attempts an up to date survey of the period in all its respectsThis title reflects two main focuses the process by which empire was acuired and the means by which the conuered territory was controlled exploited and administered The campaigns of Alexander in Europe and Asia. This really is a good Alexander book the bio is short and readable and the analysis of Alexander's rule is clear But the edition is terrible tiny print poorly broken up few guides clearer maps for one would have been useful Maybe I'm just a snob but I don't believe the typesetting should be allowed to detract from what the author has to say
