In what respects was Alexander 'Great'? This work sets out to answer this question. As a commander of men of many races, Alexander was and still is incomparable. As a statesman he envisaged and largely created an ecumenical kingdom which rose above racialism and nationalism and which enjoyed peace and prosperity, extending from his birthplace in Macedon to the borders of Kashmir. His intellect and charismatic personality so fascinated those he conquered that they served in his army and administration and made him the hero of their quasi-mythical romances. This book sets out to show that we have much to learn from this genius of a man who achieved so much before his death at 32.
