Alexander the Great, king, commander, and statesman by N. G. L Hammond( Book )
36 editions published between 1959 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 996 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Within the span of thirteen years, Alexander the Great changed the face of the world more decisively and with more long-lasting effects than any other statesman has ever done. It is therefore no surprise that there has been, and still is, so much debate about both his personality and his achievement. The great merit of this biography is that, with impressive mastery of the evidence, he sets the record straight between the extremes of romantic hero worship on the one hand and scholarly demolition on the other. Based on his detailed knowledge of the literarysources and on his own experience of warfare in Alexander's native country, Professor Hammond presents a compelling picture of Alexander in his public life as king, commander and statesman. This revised biography includes new material and extensive reference to literary sources."--Bloomsbury Publishing

Philip of Macedon by N. G. L Hammond( Book )
19 editions published between 1994 and 2007 in English and Greek, Modern and held by 590 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

Sources for Alexander the Great : an analysis of Plutarch's Life and Arrian's Anabasis Alexandrou by N. G. L Hammond( Book )
11 editions published between 1993 and 2007 in English and held by 402 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 )
4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 285 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
