This is the seventh of eight volumes on the history of Greece, first published in 1840. The volumes were aimed at two audiences: those people who wanted more than a superficial knowledge of the subject, but did not have the time or means to study the original sources, and those who had access to the ancient authors, but required a guide or interpreter. Volume 7 covers Alexander's campaigns in India, his passage down the Indus and return to Susa, and his death. It then takes the story to the end of the Lamian War, and to Cassander's occupation of Athens. Next it deals with the treaty between Antigonus and Ptolemy, Cassander and Lysimachus in 311 BCE. The final chapter considers the period from 311 BCE to the battle of Ipsus. This book will be of interest to researchers and students of ancient history.
