Philip II and Macedonian Imperialism

£19.99

Product description

From the back cover:
This study explores in depth the rise to power of Macedon under the astute leadership of Philip II, whose diplomatic adroitness and military skill paved the way for the extraordinary achievements of his son and heir, Alexander the Great.
Studies of Philip over past centuries have veered from describing him as the aggressor of his age, destroyer of the freedom of the Hellenic world, to representing him as the farsighted unifier of dissentient Hellenic elements.
here is an impartial assessment of the events and developments which brought Philip's Macedonia from the periphery to the hub of Balkan and Ægean affairs.
