about

This, the second volume of a magisterial commentary on the work of the historian Arrian, deals in depth with a crucial period (329-326 BC) of the reign of Alexander the Great. It discusses some of the earliest datable evidence for the history of Central Asia and Pakistan, and analysesAlexander's views of sovereignty and divinity. Professor Bosworth is the leading authority on Arrian, and his commentary should become a classic work of reference for historians.
A. B. Bosworth is at University of Western Australia.

Editorial Reviews

`The reviewer has been taught much by the book ... we have here a substantial and rewarding work of erudition ... Sound scholarship endures. B. has made use of Chr. Lassen's excellent Indische Altertumskunde, now more than a century and a quarter old: likewise, it is rational to hope thatstill in the twenty-second century B's fine Commentary will be read and pondered by serious students of history, literature, and antiquities.'George Huxley, Trinity College, Dublin, Hermathena, no 164, summer 1998
