Philip of Macedon by N. G. L Hammond( Book )

26 editions published between 1994 and 2007 in English and Greek, Modern and held by 622 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Philip of Macedon was one of the extraordinary figures of antiquity. Inheriting a kingdom near collapse, he left to his son Alexander the strongest state in Eastern Europe. He developed new military technology and made Macedonia the greatest power in the Western world. He created a united, multiracial kingdom based on liberal principles - and added to it the resources of a Balkan empire. Most important, he inspired the city-states of the Greek peninsula to form a unified community, ensuring peace among its members, the rule of law in internal politics, and collective security in the face of aggressors. No statesman in Europe had ever achieved so much. In Philip of Macedon N.G.L. Hammond presents a narrative history of Hellenistic Macedonia from the state's rise out of obscurity under Philip to the accession of Alexander. Focusing on the character and career of Philip, Hammond discusses developments in military technology and strategy, the social composition and geography of northern Greece, and the region's political developments. He also examines the world of the city-states, the nature of their democracies, their propensity for interstate warfare, and their development of capitalism, scientific methods, and philosophical ideas. With close analysis of the literary and material evidence - including interpretations of recent archaeological discoveries - Hammond offers a unique portrait of Philip as a Macedonian. Including illustrations of the frescoes and artifacts found in the Royal Tombs at Vergina in 1977, the book also reveals the culture and artistry of the Macedonian people who made Philip's success possible

The Macedonian State : origins, institutions, and history by N. G. L Hammond( Book )

23 editions published between 1989 and 2011 in English and held by 583 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 338 B.C. Philip II of Macedon established Macedonian rule over Greece. He was succeeded in 336 by his son Alexander the Great, whose conquests during the next twelve years reached as far as the Russian steppes, Afghanistan, and the Punjab, thus creating the Hellenistic world. Based on his earlier work, a first-ever comprehensive history of ancient Macedonia, Hammond now provides, in one volume, a history of the Macedonian State from early times to 167 B.C. Using recent epigraphic and archaeological discoveries, he offers new insight into the nature of the Macedonian State and its institutions both in Europe and in the Hellenistic kingdoms of Asia and Egypt."--Publisher's description

Sources for Alexander the Great : an analysis of Plutarch's Life and Arrian's Anabasis Alexandrou by N. G. L Hammond( Book )

14 editions published between 1993 and 2007 in English and Spanish and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Plutarch and Arrian have contributed more than any other ancient authors to our picture of Alexander the Great, but since they wrote four or more centuries after his death the value of what they said depends upon the sources of information on which they themselves drew. In this book the attempt is made (surprisingly for the first time) to define and to evaluate those sources in a detailed study, analysing the historians' works section by section and comparing them with other accounts of the same episodes. Plutarch and Arrian rank among the finest writers of antiquity, and their charm is not ignored in this appreciative study. Professor Hammond maintains that a close analysis of the sources is essential for a balanced view of the history of Alexander the Great. After writing his Alexander the Great: King, Commander and Statesman (1980; 2nd edn 1989) he published Three Historians of Alexander the Great on Diodorus, Justin and Curtius (Cambridge University Press, 1983). The present book completes his study of the five Alexander-historians and lays a new basis for work in this area. This book will be of particular value to ancient historians but also has much to offer to anyone seriously interested in the life of Alexander the Great

Ventures into Greek history( Book )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a collection of essays by seventeen international scholars, dedicated to Professor Nicholas Hammond. The scope of the book is fourth-century Greek and Macedonian history, archaeology, and source studies, and is divided into these three sections. Sources studied include Thucydides, Diodorus Siculus, Arrian, and Polybius; a new archaeological site with plates is presented, as is a hitherto unpublished krater from Macedonia, and the use of numismatic evidence is used to discuss the earlier Argead monarchy in a novel and important way. Historical essays centre on Philip II's diplomacy; a new interpretation of the controversy surrounding Alexander the Great's request for deification; Antipater, a long neglected figure; a new evaluation of the Greek attitude to Macedonian hegemony; Agis III, and important and new implications for Macedonian manpower; and even Xenophon's exile. The essays represent the most recent contributions to scholarship in these areas, and exhibit a freshness in style making both appealing and important reading

History of the Middle East and the Aegean region, c. 1800-1380 B.C. by I. E. S Edwards( Book )

24 editions published between 1973 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volumes I and II of The Cambridge Ancient History have had to be entirely rewritten as a result of the very considerable additions to knowledge which have accrued in the past forty-five years. For the same reason it has also been necessary to increase the size of the volumes and to divide each of them into two separately published parts. The individual chapters have already appeared as fascicles, but without maps, indexes and chronological tables which, for practical reasons, have been reserved for these volumes. Some additions and corrections have also been made in order to bring the text, as far as possible, up to date. Together the new volumes provide a history of Egypt and the Ancient Orient (including Greece and the Aegean region) down to 1000 BC in a form suitable for both specialist and student. Volume II, Part I, deals with the history of the region from about 1800 to 1380 BC. This was the era of Hammurabi in Western Asia, the Hyksos and warrior-kings of the Eighteenth Dynasty in Egypt, and the Minoan and early Mycenaean civilizations in Crete and mainland Greece

The prehistory of the Balkans; and the Middle East and the Aegean world, tenth to eighth centuries B.C. by John Boardman( Book )

23 editions published in 1982 in 3 languages and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volume III of The Cambridge Ancient History was first published in 1925 in one volume. The new edition has expanded to such an extent, owing to the immense amount of new information now available, that it has had to be divided into three parts. Volume III Part 1 opens with a survey of the Balkans north of Greece in the Prehistoric period. This is the first time such a survey has been published of this area which besides its intrinsic interest is important for its influence on the cultures of the Aegean and Anatolia. The rest of the book is devoted to the tenth to the eighth centuries B.C. In Greece and the Aegean the main theme is the gradual regeneration from the Dark Age and the emergence of a society in which can be seen the beginnings of the city-state. During the same period in Western Asia and the Middle East the Kingdoms of Assyria and Babylonia rise to power, the Urartians appear, and in Palestine the kingdoms of Israel and Judah flourish. In Egypt the country's fortunes revive briefly under Shoshenq I. The final chapter in this part deals with the languages of Greece and the Balkans and with the invention and spread of alphabetic writing
