Book description

This Companion volume offers fifteen original essays on the Hellenistic world and is intended to complement and supplement general histories of the period from Alexander the Great to Kleopatra VII of Egypt. Each chapter treats a different aspect of the Hellenistic world - religion, philosophy, family, economy, material culture, and military campaigns, among other topics. The essays address key questions about this period: To what extent were Alexander's conquests responsible for the creation of this new 'Hellenistic' age? What is the essence of this world and how does it differ from its Classical predecessor? What continuities and discontinuities can be identified? Collectively, the essays provide an in-depth view of a complex world. The volume also provides a bibliography on the topics along with recommendations for further reading.

Reviews

'… the contributions are diverse in approach and style; all are accessible and rewarding.'

'The present volume should serve both as an introduction for the student and as a useful reference work for the more advanced scholar. In common with the rest of the series the price of £17.99 for the paperback edition (£45 hardback) should ensure that this volume receives the success it deserves.'
