This concise book includes an introduction providing a sketch of Alexander's career, along with notes on the text, maps, extensive vocabulary, and illustrations. But aside from its value as a textbook, this is a highly entertaining look at a historic figure who truly deserved the title of "Great." Quintus Curtius Rufus created a stylistic gem in this colorful biography, offering a vibrant portrait that captures both the herotic and the tyrannical Alexander.
