Good day, welcome on Alessandro III di Macedonia- your source about Alexander the Great. Today I’ve to announce you a new interesting publication:
Philip II, the Father of Alexander the Great. Themes and Issues
by Edward M. Anson
Philip II was not only the father of Alexander the Great, but in many respects was also the father of his son’s incredible career. It was the father who unified Macedonia into the first European nation and who created the army with which his son conquered the Persian Empire and inaugurated the Hellenistic Age.
This volume is not the standard biography, but rather an examination of the major controversies concerning his life and reign. How did Philip in roughly twenty years transform a divided territory and little more than a geographical conception into a national state? How did he change the very nature of ancient Western warfare? How did he transform this formerly exploited region into the master of the Greek world?
Each chapter discusses one of the major academic controversies surrounding this transformative figure, bringing new clarity to the career of a man whose reputation has been so overshadowed by his illustrious son.Edward M. Anson is Professor of History at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. He is the author or editor of five books, most recently Eumenes of Cardia: A Greek among Macedonians (2004), and more than forty journal articles.
This book by professor Anson will be publish on October 1st 2020 by Bloomsbury Academic and it will immediately be available in paperback edition:
|Hardback||Paperback||EPUB/MOBI eBook (Watermarked)||PDF eBook (Watermarked)|
The paper editions will have 256 pages and dimensions of 234 x 156 mm.
