An ideal text for those who have completed two years of high school Latin, this volume makes extensive use of parallels, contrasts, and comparison in its depiction of Alexander the Great's life.

Originally published as a Cambridge Elementary Classic, this concise book includes an introduction providing a sketch of Alexander's career, along with notes on the text, maps, extensive vocabulary, and illustrations. But aside from its value as a textbook, this is a highly entertaining look at a historic figure who truly deserved the title of "Great." Quintus Curtius Rufus created a stylistic gem in this colorful biography, offering a vibrant portrait that captures both the heroic and the tyrannical Alexander.
