Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 150299853X, Paperback)Alexander the Great. Everyone knows about the ancient Macedonian prodigy and his conquest of the known world of his time – but how do they know? In this penetrating essay, Betty Younis delves into the actual ancient sources who wrote about Alexander and traces their perilous descent down to us today, investigating the slender thread connecting the history of the past to the comfortable assumptions of the present, and posing the truly critical question: how much has been 'lost in transmission'?
