Alexander the Great

Front Cover
University of Pittsburgh Press, 1974 - Biography & Autobiography - 196 pages
In taking account of recent research and in reassesing the markedly contradictory contemporary sources, J.R. Hamilton present a far less attractive but no less compelling portrait of Alexander than Tarn's classic study. The discussion ranges from Alexander's Macedonian background and relations with Philip to his request for deification and his death, and the economic achievements of his reign are stressed alongside the military.
