Editorial Reviews


"19 well-written studies about a broad range of subjects of scholarship on Philip II and Alexander the Great. In my view each paper will be of interest to specialists on individual topics of Greek and Macedonian history." --Bryn Mawr Classical Review

"[This] book has a nice balance between articles examining the actual historical traditions or archaeological evidence and those investigating the reception of Philip and Alexander in ancient traditions and modern interpretations. This volume will be a true contribution to Macedonian and Alexander's studies." --Greece and Rome

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The contents of the book are good and I would not give a two stars review (probably 5 stars) if the notes could be used in an organized way at the Kindle edition. The notes are not hyperlinks.
This is a issue that must be fixed and is really unbelievable its occurrence and I will not comment any other aspect of the book in order not to produce distractions out of this terrible issue.
