1 Review
Alexander the Great, who in his short life changed the course of history, has never ceased to capture the imagination of readers and students. The author writes, "The legend about him, equally current in East and West, took him to the limits of the earth and even to the gates of Paradise. The permanent result of his life, however, was not the empire which he won by hard fighting, but the development of Greek civilization into a civilization which was world-wide. It is in this way that his influence has affected the history of mankind even down to our own time." [Back cover].
