Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 076181695X, Hardcover)

In this volume, Sidky undertakes the task of reconstructing the history of Greek Bactria, a warlike kingdom that existed twenty-two centuries ago in what is now northern Afghanistan, from fragmentary sources. The resulting work brings to life ancient documents in a narrative scope, where a forgotten people are recreated in the reader's mind. The story of east meeting west, and the resulting synthesis, is re-told here, with critical analysis of sources fitting easily alongside vivid descriptions of glorious battles and great cities. This easily accessible, yet scholarly, work will interest students of ancient history and archaeology.
