`Review from other book by this author For those whose interest in Alexander has been stirred, as well as for students of the period, this collection must become compulsory reading.' Contemporary Review
`An essential acquisition for graduate and advanced undergraduate collections.' Rochelle Snee, Religious Studies Review
`sensitive discussion of Alexander the Great ... Bosworth judiciously assesses the sources, but also considers the geographical and social context. Professor Bosworth deserves to be read, and not just by classicists or historians of the ancient world, since this is a prudent investigation of the construction of the heroic image of a totalitarian ruler' Times Literary Supplement
`This monograph ... makes a number of profound statements not just about matters relating to Alexander's campaigns in the East, but also about fundamental issues which are central to Alexander studies ... What brings the whole book together and makes it work as a monograph is the subtle interweaving of recurring themes ... an important contribution to Alexander studies ... It is a tight and controlled exposition and exploration of various problems connected with Alexander's campaigns in the East, while at the same time presenting deeper insights into who Alexander was as disinterred from a difficult, complex and often contradictory source tradition.' Journal of Hellenic Studies
`B's main themes are important and he develops them well, with numerous trenchant and pithy observations. The portrait of Alexander he builds up is a sobering one, at times chilling. His forthright criticisms of the king will win him few friends among admirers of Alexander, but are a necessary antidote to the recurrent temptation to idealize him.' A. D. Lee, The Classical Review

Description du livre État : New. Oxford University Press, 2002. 324p. Hardback. The Legacy of Alexander offers careful and sophisticated analysis of a variety of subjects concerning the Diadochs. Some of these are given full treatment here for the first time, particularly the conflict between Eumenes and Antigonos in Iran. Bosworth's extensive account of that campaign with its frozen salt deserts, intrigue and treason, is not only detailed and insightful but entertaining as well.
