"The Genius of Alexander the Great tells with pace and clarity of style a dynamic tale of a military and administrative genius". Philip A. Stadter, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill By the time of his death in 323 B.C., Alexander III of Macedonia had built an empire which stretched from the eastern Mediterranean coast through Asia Minor and into the Indus valley. Even before his sudden death, Alexander had achieved mythical status throughout his kingdom, and in the centuries that followed his life became the subject of countless chronicles and biographies. N. G. L. Hammond, the foremost expert on ancient Macedonian history, here presents a next- account of Alexander's fabled career. Based on a thorough analysis of the ancient sources and enriched by a lifetime of research, Hammond's narrative pronounces the Macedonian conqueror a man truly deserving of the title Alexander the Great. According to Hammond, Alexander was a visionary statesman and general, the force behind a kingdom which rose above racism and nationalism to enjoy peace and prosperity. His intellect and charismatic personality, which earned him the respect, admiration, and devotion of his subjects, also help explain Alexander's endurance as a source of fascination into the present day. A preeminent historian captures the essence of the fabled Alexander in a new biography for the general reader The Genius of Alexander the Great Hammond, Nicholas G., University of North Carolina Press

HAMMOND, N.G.L.,:
The Genius of Alexander the Great. - used book

1997

ISBN: 0807823503

ID: 32136

University of North Carolina Press, Chapel Hill, 1997. XIII,220p. Bound wrps. Nice copy. Unbekannter Einband `Written for the general reader, this book is a distillation of Hammond`s prior scholarship on Macedonia and Alexander.1 Both professional and lay audiences remain fascinated by Alexander the Great. Books and articles appear at a dizzy pace, and exhibitions, even of small scope, draw a public eager to understand the magnitude of his conquests and accomplishments. Hammond`s approach to his subject is that of the influence of great men on the course of history. It is an approach that has generally fallen out of intellectual currency whereas a contextual approach is more accepted. An underlying assumption in this account is that by reason and deduction one may arrive at the `truth` about Alexander.` (JANET BURNETT GROSSMANN in Bryn Mawr Classical Review 97.11.17). ohne Angabe, [PU: University of North Carolina Press]
