Reviews - What do customers think about Alexander the Great and Bactria: The Formation of a Greek Frontier in Central Asia (Mnemosyme, Bibliotheca Classica Batava, Supplementum Centisimum)?
The beginning of the attack on Alexander Aug 30, 2000
A good examination of the means and motives for Alexander of Makedon's conquest and colonization of Bactria. This is best read as the prequel to his excellent "Thundering Zeus : The Making of Hellenistic Bactria." Recommended.
