Praise

Advance praise for Alexander

“This thorough and deeply researched book is very welcome. Guy Rogers gives us, too, the astonishing and highly important relevance, to our whole history, including recent times, of this almost incredible career. Read it and think!”
–ROBERT CONQUEST

“Rogers’s Alexander is a learned and judicious essay about a man who became a myth in his lifetime and remains partly mythical today in spite of the best efforts of generations of scholars to interpret and reinterpret surviving ancient texts about him. Certainty on many points will never be possible; but reading what Rogers has to say about how Alexander changed the world around him and how his deeds still echo among us is a delightful exercise. Alexander modeled himself on Homer’s heroes and actually joined their company, as no one else ever managed to do.”
–WILLIAM H. MCNEILL, professor emeritus in history, University of Chicago, and author of The Rise of the West

“Guy Rogers has written a lively account of the amazing career of Alexander the Great. He greatly admires the Macedonian conqueror and his achievements, but his judgments are more balanced and marked by common sense than many modern treatments.”
–DONALD KAGAN, Sterling Professor of History and Classics, Yale University, author of The Peloponnesian War and other books.
