Alexander the Great by Krzysztof Nawotka( )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is possibly the most comprehensive biography of Alexander on the market. It presents his story strictly on the basis of ancient sources, making use as much as possible of contemporary Greek inscriptions, coins, and of non-western evidence (Babylonian tablets, Egyptian papyri, Bactrian parchments). The latter in particular change our understanding of how the Achaemenid state was run and how the Macedonian conquests were perceived from the Oriental perspective
The Alexander romance by Ps.-Callisthenes : a historical commentary by Krzysztof Nawotka( Book )

9 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Alexander Romance by Ps.-Callisthenes" of Krzysztof Nawotka is a guide to a third-century AD fictional biography of Alexander the Great, the anonymous "Historia Alexandri Magni." It is a historical commentary which identifies all names and places in this piece of Greek literature approached as a source for the history of Alexander the Great, from kings, like Nectanebo II of Egypt and Darius III of Persia, to fictional characters. It discusses real and imaginary geography of the "Alexander Romance." While dealing with all aspects of Ps.-Callisthenes relevant to Greek history and to Macedonia, its pays particular attention to aspects of ancient history and culture of Babylonia and Egypt and to the multi-layered foundation story of Alexandria
Alexander the Great and the East : history, art, tradition by Krzysztof Nawotka( Book )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and German and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many papers in this volume focus on Egypt, from the XXX dynasty to the Ptolemaic age. A lasting achievement of the early Macedonian age in Egypt is the lighthouse of Pharos, probably devised under Alexander to serve both as a watchtower of Alexandria and the focal point of the fire telegraph. Another focus of the volume is on Babylonia, with caveats against the over-enthusiastic usage of cuneiform sources for Alexander. The focus then moves further east, showing how much caution is necessary in studying the topography of Alexander's campaigns in Baktria, the land often misrepresented by ancient and medieval authors. It also deals with representation and literary topoi, having in mind that Alexander was as much a historical as a literary figure. In many respects ancient Alexander historians handled his persona in strong connection with Herodotean topics, while the idealized portrait of Alexander translated, through court poetry, into the language of power of Ptolemy of Egypt. Alexander was adopted to cultural traditions of the East, both through the medium of the Alexander Romance and through his fictitious correspondence with Aristotle, sometimes becoming a figure of a (Muslim) mystic or a chosen (Jewish) king.--Publisher description

The Alexander Romance : history and literature by Agnieszka Wojciechowska( )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The 'Alexander Romance' is a difficult text to define and to assess justly. From its earliest days it was an open text, which was adapted into a variety of cultures with meanings that themselves vary, and yet seem to carry a strong undercurrent of homogeneity: Alexander is the hero who cannot become a god, and who encapsulates the desires and strivings of the host cultures. The papers assembled in this volume, which were originally presented at a conference at the University of Wroclaw, Poland, in October 2015, all face the challenge of defining the 'Alexander Romance'. Some focus on quite specific topics while others address more overarching themes. They form a cohesive set of approaches to the delicate positioning of the text between history and literature. From its earliest elements in Hellenistic Egypt, to its latest reworkings in the Byzantine and Islamic Middle East, the Alexander Romance shows itself to be a work that steadily engages with such questions as kingship, the limits of human (and Greek) nature, and the purpose of history. The Romance began as a history, but only by becoming literature could it achieve such a deep penetration of east and west."--Provided by publisher

The western pontic cities : history and political organization by Krzysztof Nawotka( Book )

6 editions published between 1991 and 1997 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The evolution of Istros' government from the original narrow oligarchy to a democracy in the fourth century B.C. and later back to oligarchy can be traced with some degree of certainty. Indirect evidence justifies putting forward a hypothesis of the oligarchic character of the constitutions of the remaining Western Pontic cities from their foundation into the Roman epoch
