Editorial Reviews

Book Description

Plutarch and Arrian are the ancient writers who tell us most about Alexander the Great. This book is the first attempt to analyse and evaluate in detail the sources of information they themselves drew on, a necessary first step to appreciating the value of their own accounts. It completes Professor Hammond's study of the five Alexander-historians which began with Three Historians of Alexander the Great (Cambridge University Press 1983) and lays a new basis for work on Alexander.

By M. Clark on May 26, 2010
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This review by one of Alexander's best biographers of primary sources and top-tier modern commentaries (such as from Bosworth, Hammond, Badian, Tarn, etc.) is excellent, and I would recommend it to any student of Alexander. However, if you're looking for an introductory text, or just some light reading on the subject, steer clear.
