Concerning Alexander the Great: A Reconstruction of Cleitarchus: Second Edition


The most influential account of the career of Alexander the Great was penned by Cleitarchus in the decades after Alexander’s death. Most of the surviving ancient texts on Alexander were based upon his work, but every copy of the original was destroyed in antiquity. Now the entire book has been revived in an exciting reconstruction based upon an in-depth analysis of the surviving ancient works that it inspired. Here you will find Alexander revealed in a startling new light as a very human and believable individual, who drives and is then driven by a momentous cascade of events. Here you can rediscover the oldest and also the most authentic literary portrait of the king spanning all thirteen years of his reign. (Second Edition)
