Book Reviews

Posting this in resposne to the movie coming out this weekend...

Cartledge, Paul. Alexander the Great. Overlook $28.95.

Military History: “Cartledge is one academic whose narrative can catch the reader up in the journey and shed some new light.” PW: “Riveting. Carledge’s knack for bringing history to life makes for an absorbing new biography of the legendary Greek leader.”Kirkus: “A literate rendering of Alexander’s life, drawing on the most reliable ancient and modern sources.” Library Journal: “Ultimately, this work presents not so much a new understanding of Alexander as a provocative survey of how historians have perhaps misunderstood him. Lucid. Recommended.”
