Alexander the Great and the Hellenistic Age by Peter Green

Book Description

A masterly narrative survey of three centuries, from Alexander's conquest and empire to the triumph of Rome. The book begins with the personality and achievements of Alexander the Great, and continues with the military and political violence of the successor-kingdoms that fought over his inheritance. This era saw many important developments: a shift from the oral to the written; a move from the public to the private and a new individualist ethos; a huge growth in slavery, and therefore a glut of slave-labour which destroyed the incentive to innovate; a growing gap between rich and poor; a growing taste for luxury.
