Overview

In a display both of awe-inspiring personality and military brilliance, the Greek general Alexander the Great lead his armies across three continents to build an empire that would eventually include Persia, Asia Minor, Syria, and Egypt. Without his unique gifts, Alexander would never have managed almost single-handedly to conquer such distant territories. While historians have differing opinions of Alexander, nearly all agree that he connected cultures that would have otherwise remained isolated. Alexander the Great, Revised Edition examines how Alexander inspired such extreme loyalty in his soldiers, how he kept such a large empire under control, and how the many cultures of the peoples he conquered were changed as a result of his influence.

Great Empires of the Past narrates the stories of the most influential empires in world history. Each volume in the series provides an overview of one empire or civilization, exploring its rise and fall, the extent of its influence, society and daily life, and impact in the modern world. Numerous sidebars highlight connections to today, key primary documents, and interesting facts. Full-color photographs and maps, a time line, glossary, bibliography, list of further resources, and an index provide readers with additional access to the information.
