Description
"It is a daunting task to write a biography of Alexander the Great," writes E.E. Rice in her introduction to this concise biography. (Not much is known, she adds, yet much scholarly information exists and continues to grow.) For this account, Rice has synthesized the material available and, with the general reader in mind, presents the facts and problems that she and other historians find most important to an understanding of Alexander, who was educated by Aristotle, first led troops when he was just 18, ascended to the throne of Macedonia, and irrevocably changed the course of history by possessing the cities along the Mediterranean, conquering Egypt, and founding Alexandria—all before dying suddenly at the age of 33.
