About the Author

Professor of Classics and Ancient History, University of Western Australia


The Legacy of Alexander offers careful and sophisticated analysis of a variety of subjects concerning the Diadochs. Some of these are given full treatment here for the first time, particularly the conflict between Eumenes and Antigonos in Iran. Bosworth's extensive account of that campaign with its frozen salt deserts, intrigue and treason, is not only detailed and insightful but entertaining as well. Bryn Mawr Classical Review ... the six essays that make up The Legacy of Alexander offer important, and often fascinating, examinations of many aspects of the genesis of the Hellenistic kingdoms. Bryn Mawr Classical Review Bosworth displays all his historiographical and analytical skills in focussing on some of the major players of this confused and confusing epoch. Anglo-Hellenic Review What Bosworth doesn't know about the period around the life of Alexander the Great can be written on the back of a penny black, so the accuracy and content of this work is in no doubt. JACT Review
