About the Authors
  • This is the sixth of eight volumes on the history of Greece, first published in 1839. The volumes were aimed at two audiences: those people who wanted more than a superficial knowledge of the subject, but did not have the time or means to study the original sources, and those who had access to the ancient authors, but required a guide or interpreter. Volume 6 covers the period from the end of the Sacred War to the renewal of hostilities between Philip and the Athenians, and Philip's death. It looks at Alexander's accession and the taking of Thebes. It then surveys the history of Persia from the Peace of Antalcidas to Alexander's accession, his expedition in Asia, the battle of Issus and the taking of Persepolis. It also looks at Alexander's campaigns in Bactria and Sogdiana. This book will be of interest to researchers and students of ancient history.
