Here is one of the great biographies of Alexander, in its original form, brought fully up to date with findings of modern research and criticism.

The Norton edition of Ulrich Wilcken's distinguished biography has made available for almost three decades a classic study enhanced with a modern scholars notes, bibliography, and introduction to Alexander studies. Alexander the Great as an empire-conqueror continues to capture the imagination, but the spread of Greek civilization throughout the world was his greatest legacy.
