Παρουσίαση

In what respects was Alexander 'Great'? It is an exciting task for a historian to answer that question, and in this fascinating study Nicholas Hammond undertakes it with enthusiasm. His thorough acquaintance with the ancient sources enables him to judge whether the many recorded incidents of Alexander's brilliant life are drawn from reliable contemporaries or fictional writers.
As a commander of men of many races, Alexander was and is incomparable. As a statesman he envisaged, and to some extent created, an ecumenical kingdom which rose above race and nation and which enjoyed peace and prosperity, extending from his birthplace in Macedonia to the borders of Kashmir. His intellect and charismatic personality so fascinated those he conquered that they served in his army and administration and adopted him as the hero of their quasi-mythical romances. We have much to learn today from this genius of a man who died having achieved so much at the age of thirty-two.
Nicholas Hammond was Professor of Greek at Bristol University and an Honorary Fellow of Clare College, Cambridge. His many other books include Alexander the Great: king, commander and statesman, and Philip of Macedon. (From the publisher)

Paule Bowles: Πόσες φορές ακόμα θα δεις μια πανσέληνο να ανατέλλει; Ο θάνατος βρίσκεται πάντα καθοδόν, αλλά το γεγονός ότι δεν γνωρίζουμε πότε θα φτάσει μοιάζει να αφαιρεί κάτι από το πεπερασμένο της ζωής. Είναι τούτη ...
