Abstract:

"The Hellenistic Age chronicles the years 336 to 30 B.C.E., from the days of Philip and Alexander of Macedon to the death of Cleopatra and the final triumph of Caesar's heir, the young Augustus. Peter Green's far-ranging study covers the prevalent themes and events of those centuries: the Hellenization of an immense swath of the known world-from Egypt to India - by Alexander's conquests; the lengthy and chaotic partition of this empire by rival Macedonian marshals after Alexander's death; the decline of the polis (city-state) as the predominant political institution; and, finally, Rome's moment of transition from republican to imperial rule."
