  • DESCRIPTION

    Alexander the Great famously brought the mighty Persian Empire’s two-hundred year rule to an end, but the figure behind this phenomenon often eludes us. This book invites students to follow Alexander’s remarkable story and to engage with a variety of perspectives on him as king, general and human being. Notes provide helpful contextual information for these excerpts while questions challenge readers to embark on their own investigations of this fascinating individual, who continues to rival all others in historical significance.
