skill. This edition features a new translation of both texts,

maps and a full index. Key Features: A new translation of Arrian's

history of Alexander the Great, the prime source for our knowledge

of Alexander and a compelling work of literature. The only edition

to include Arrian's companion piece, the Indica, a fascinating

account of the voyage of Alexander's fleet under Nearchus from

south India to the Persian gulf, with descriptions of the

geography, customs, and natural curiosities of India. Martin

Hammond's engaging translation is fully alive to the literary

qualities of Arrian's prose, making this the most readable and

attractive modern version. Introduction sets Arrian in his

historical context and describes the life of Alexander as it is

reflected in his work. Three invaluable appendices provide a full

guide to military systems, structure, and terminology. Full notes

identify historical references and allusions, and the interplay of

historical and literary issues. Maps and site plans, and a

comprehensive analytical index. Readership Those interested in

in translation, military history, war studies, historiography. Publikace: ALEXANDER THE GREAT (Oxford World´s Classics New Edition) - ARRIAN. 'He was a man like no other man has ever been' So Arrian sums up the career of Alexander the Great of Macedon (356-323 BC), who in twelve years that changed the world led his army in conquest of a vast empire extending from the Danube to the rivers of the Punjab, from Egypt to Uzbekistan, and died in Babylon at the age of 32 with further ambitions unfulfilled. Arrian (c. 86-161 AD), a Greek man of letters who had experience of military command and of the highest political office in both Rome and Athens, set out to write the definitive account of Alexander's life and campaigns, published as the Anabasis and its later companion piece the Indica . His work is now our prime and most detailed extant source for the history of Alexander, and it is a dramatic story, fast-moving like its main subject, and told with great narrative skill. Arrian admired Alexander and was fascinated by him, but was also alive to his faults: he presents a compelling account of an exceptional leader, brilliant, ruthless, passionate, and complex. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe.

Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, includi
