4.0 out of 5 stars ...still looking for that perfect book on the Hellenistic Era, June 5, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Hellenistic Age: A Short History (Modern Library Chronicles) (Paperback)
Having just read and struggled with Peter Green's much larger 1992 book on the same subject, "Alexander to Actium", I decided to read this book. I have to report that the most negative criticism about his larger book, a bothersome use of exotic foreign language phrases and rambling discussions, was much improved. His larger book focused on 25 or so topics chronologically, but this book sticks more closely to a chronologic storyline. Keep in mind that Green is considered one of the experts on the subject matter, so even though a lot of information is covered, it is high quality. The Hellenistic Era is a hot topic of research at the moment. It's a tough era to study, but clearly much important history happened during it, it ties the Greek and Roman eras together, and that is why I believe historians are giving the era another look. If you have a favorite book on the era, let me know and why. Thanks.
