Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0951139215, Paperback)

The Making of Alexander is a unique mixture of high-class, hilarious text and stunning photography of a great film in process. Popular and provocative, it gives moviegoers a brilliant portrait of the talent the film brought together.

Fifteen years in planning, the Alexander movie is the major film epic of the decade, with a production budget of $160 million and in the United States alone, a Warner Bros. publicity campaign of $35 million. Three-time Academy Award-winning director Oliver Stone has led a star cast in a spellbinding movie, premiering in the United States on November 24, 2004. Alexander sets new standards with unprecedented drama, history and emotional power.

This book, endorsed by the studios Intermedia and Warner Bros., is the only official "inside guide" to the film. The author enjoyed unique access as the film's historical adviser for two and a half years and worked very closely with the director, the script and the stars. He also served as a cavalryman on location, riding with the stars in the film's spectacular battles and charges.

Robin Lane Fox is the world's best-selling historian of Alexander. A professor at Oxford University, his own historical biography of Alexander has now sold more than a million copies and was the major source for the makers of the film.

With Warner Bros.' backing, The Making of Alexander is planned to be publicized on the Warner Bros. Alexander web sites and interactive material, for which Robin Lane Fox is a consultant and historical writer.
