4-0 out of 5 stars O'Brien's Book is really great
I had the opportunity to be a student in Professor O'Brien's Alexander the Great class at Queens college.He was so knowlegdeable and eloquent in that class, his book is also a really well-rounded inquiry to Alexander.In his book, aside from his on take on Alexander, O'Brien reveals many of the differing characterizations that other leading historians such as Peter Green, Mary Renault, Robin Lane Fox, etc. attribute to Alexander.I have read a bunch of Alexander biographies, however, O'Brien's is one of the more well-rounded.Plus, he gives his own interesting opinion on the role alcohol played in Alexander's life and death.This book is excellent for someone who is a serious historian or history student, but it is also written clear enough that you don't have to be one of the latter in order to understand it.I recommmend this book, because the fair balance O'Brien gives to the debate over Alexander's mysterious and multi-faced personality.
3-0 out of 5 stars Surely carefully researched, but ...
... the chapter on Alexander's sexuality was a little bit strange. The author comes up with quite some proof that Alexander loved his own sex more than the opposite one only to conclude in the last two paragraphs that since Alexander eventually married to produce heirs (a point the author stresses) he possibly was just a "reluctant heterosexual".
5-0 out of 5 stars Great book on Alexander the Great
I find this book fascinating, full of interesting facts and references. A great reading for someone who is curious to find out more about the phenomenon we call Alexander the Great. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A wonderful Biography of a ship
The USS Macedonean (originally HMS) is largely forgotten today, but her legacy is intertwined with the early days and wellfare of the young American republic.She was the first English warship to be captured by the American Navy, and was instrumental to putting an end to the Barbary pirates, and even had a hand in the reopening of Japan to the world. 5-0 out of 5 stars A wonderful Biography of a ship

2-0 out of 5 stars Attempt at a complex subject
A lot of text, and I mean a lot, accompanies the drawings in this book.In fact, there is more page space devoted to the text than the coloring sections -- sure to disappoint children.The text is a good attempt to discuss a very complicated period of history and a rather difficult man to understand regardless of what "biographers" claim.The biggest problems I have with this coloring book are: Is the subject really appropriate for children and why aren't all the drawings labeled for where and when the originals were created. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A closely researched and candidly told narrative
Ably and knowledgeably written by Henryk J. Sokalski (the special representative of the UN secretary-general who led the UN Preventive Deployment Force in Macedonia), An Ounce Of Prevention: Macedonia And The UN Experience In Preventive Diplomacy is a firsthand account of the complex task of peacekeeping during the course of the only peaceful succession from the former Yugoslavia. A closely researched and candidly told narrative of complex ethnic group interplays, An Ounce Of Prevention is thought provoking, and a strongly recommended addition to academic International Studies and supplemental reading lists. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Who wants to reintroduce a "Macedonian question"?
Reviewed by Zhidas Daskalovski (School of Slavonic and East European Studies, University College London) E-mail: daskalovski@hotmail.com3-0 out of 5 stars Greek Denial of the Macedonian Name
The most important thing to remember about the "Macedonian conflict" is that the Greek position has changed dramatically over the past decade. Official Greek government policy was that Macedonia did not exist. When Greece took over Aegean Macedonia in 1913, they killed, tortured and ethnically cleansed hundreds of thousands of Macedonians. They changed the names of people, villages, and landmarks from Macedonian to Greek in their attempts to eradicate the Macedonian name.Read more

This is one of the best books about ancient Macedonia , if not the best. It is probably the first time we have a book based on solid archaeological evidence. It is a fantastic reference for everyone who wishes to study the life of this ancient Greek kingdom.

1-0 out of 5 stars not about macedonia or the macedonians
this book is about the asian christians that were brought into aegean macedonia, to assimilate with the native macedonians, to give them a feeeling of greekness, after the greeks occupied the southern half of the kingdom of macedonia after the second balken war. this person(author?)is having an internal conflict themselves after having a sex change. interesting though, that they have the same problem about their identity, since they were brought into macedonia as greeks from turkey in the 1920 s , they know deep down they cannot be real greeks so they try to steal the native macedonians identity and make it their own. confusing, yes, just as the writer he/she is. I doubt that any of these stories are real infact thats all they maybe is just that stories, pitifull!!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Interesting biography
An interesting story which, althought from a personal point of view as any biography, it provides a good description of macedonia during the 20th century. I have read this book and I may say that some of the previous reviewers rated it only based on its title and the sort description provided. Thus I attribute the attacks to misunderstanding. This book refers to the province of macedonia in northern greece (the ancient kingdom) and it's relation to bulgaria and NOT to the slavs (of bulgarian blood) and their civil war with the minotiry of albanians in the modern-slavic-macedonia (the ancient kingdom of Paeonia).1-0 out of 5 stars author confuses facts
as a person whose family is from aegean macedonia (where this story takes place)i know first hand what atrocities happened to the natives of all of macedonia by the turks the serbs the bulgars and especially the greeks. this author is confused about who are the real macedonians and what is the real macedonia. people who fought for true independence of macedonia did not side with any of their "liberators" and if they did they were known to be traitors of macedonia or as locals called them "speown". when somewon was killed for this it was always blamed on the "other side" but more likely by someone in their own village or even by their own family. nice story but that all it is just a story. real i doubt it . in future when writing of macedonia please be factual and not just political mombojumbo for the greek government . remember up intill 9-10 years ago the greek stance was no such thing as macedonia. ...

This is probably the saddest study on Alexander the Great I have ever read. Ashley wants us - seriously - to believe Nearchos' fleet battled with Neanderthal men. A misreading of Arrian by the author has convinced him that Aristobulus was the son of the Indian King Poros. There are major and minor mistakes on almost every page. At the price of 60 US dollars, you should really look for a better book.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The "GREATEST" OF THE "GREAT"
Alexander the Great, was born on or around July 20, 356 B.C.E., and is my favorite personality to read about in history. To me he is the whole package general, statesman, conqueror, and philosopher. The smartest man who ever lived, Aristotle, tutored him. Alexander conquered more of the known world than any other figure in history, accomplishing all this before he dies at the ripe old age of 33. Some people called him conqueror and violent overlord. Some other called him civilizer and even God! All of them yet, called him "The Great". He was the first man in modern history that took this name, "The Great"! Even as a young boy, he shows great promise.
