About the Author

Robin Waterfield was formerly a university lecturer at the universities of Newcastle and St Andrews, before becoming a commissioning editor at Penguin Books. A freelance writer and translator since the early 1980s, he has published numerous translations of the Greek classics for both the Oxford World's Classics and Penguin Classics. He now lives in the far south of Greece on a small olive farm.


`Gripping.' Simon Sebag Montefiore, New York Times Book Review `He provides us with a brilliant work of history and humanity, facts within cautionary tales.' John Shosky, The European Legacy `Review from previous edition Robin Waterfield has produced an excellent introduction...He conveys the drama of the aftermath of Alexander's death with the intensity of a novelist.' Military Times `A briskly readable march through tumultuous events which continue to reverberate.' Daily Express `Robin Waterfield's coruscating cultural-political narrative does full and equal justice to all the major dimensions of this extraordinary half-century.' Paul Cartledge, author of Ancient Greece, A History in Eleven Cities `A gripping and often unsettling account of a formative period of ancient history. As Robin Waterfield points out, it deserves to be far better known than it is -- and now, thanks to the author himself, it is as accessible as it has ever been.' Tom Holland, author of Persian Fire: The First World Empire and the Battle for the West
