Summary
"The Greek World after Alexander examines social changes in the cities of the Greek world and in the kingdoms which succeeded Alexander's empire. The investigation is set in the context of an up-to-date appraisal of the momentous military and political changes that took place after Alexander's reign. Graham Shipley's study also considers developments in literature, religion, philosophy, and science, establishing whether they departed radically from Classical Greek culture or developed continuously from it. In addition, he explores the divisions in Hellenistic culture separating an educated elite from the general population which was more mobile than before but perhaps less involved in city politics." "The Greek World after Alexander will be invaluable to students, teachers, and researchers alike."--Jacket
