In this comprehensive and well-documented book, Graham Shipley integrates the diverse aspects of politics, society and culture to create a coherent and thorough survey of the Hellenistic world.

The Greek World After Alexander examines social changes in the old and new cities of the Greek world and in the post-Alexandrian kingdoms, within the context of an up-to-date appraisal of the momentous military and political changes after the era of Alexander.

It also considers developments in literature, religion, philosophy and science and establishes how far they were radical departures from the culture of Classical Greece or were continuous developments from it.

Finally, Graham Shipley explores the culture of the Hellenistic world in the context of the social divisions between an educated elite and a general population at once more mobile and less involved in the political life of the Greek City.

The Greek World After Alexander offers an invaluable introduction to the Hellenistic world.
