Item Description...

The vast empire that Alexander the Great left at his death in 323 BC has few parallels. For the next three hundred years the Greeks controlled a complex of monarchies and city-states that stretched from the Adriatic Sea to India. Walbank's lucid and authoritative history of that Hellenistic world examines political events, describes the different social systems and "mores" of the people under Greek rule, traces important developments in literature and science, and discusses the new religious movements.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Tough going, better as a supplement  Mar 17, 2003
I'm glad I read this along with the class that assigned it as a textbook. It is enormously informative, comprehensive, and concise.

Unfortunately, it is almost unreadable. Walbank assumes the reader has a familiarity with a lot of ancient persons (many with the same names) and customs (cult of Arsinoe, anyone?). If you want to know about Alexander the Great, I suggest you go straight to the horse's mouth and read Penguin's edition of Arrian's _Life of Alexander_.

Likewise, grab a book on the Ptolemies, one on the Macedonians, the Selefkids and the early Romans. Then maybe this book will make some sense.

Ok, but not the best source  May 16, 2000
Walbank's small book on the Hellenistic period is certainly well priced -- your students won't complain about that. However they might complain that the book hardly reads or is laid out like an introductory textbook, which it clearly is meant to be. Thus why it is interesting reading for the higher level historian, it is not the best for undergraduates or laypeople.
