Description
While royal dynasts battled for dominion over Alexander the Great's disintegrating empire, an age of cultural globalization flourished, and people and ideas travelled freely over great areas, from the Rhone to the Indus, and Egypt to Tajikistan. In this Very Short Introduction, Peter Thonemann explores this extraordinary era--from the magnificent library of Alexandria to the city of Priene, which rotated honorary statues depending on whose rule they happened to fall under at the time. From the death of Alexander to the final stand of Cleopatra, he traces the story of this cultural world, and the power struggles which wracked it.
