The Cambridge Companion to the Hellenistic World

I published a book review of a fascinating book “The Cambridge Companion to the Hellenistic World.

The Cambridge Companion to the Hellenistic World is a valuable recent compendium that provides fifteen up-to-date survey articles on major topics of academic interest in the Hellenistic era.  Among other things, the book seeks to answer three questions.
First, to what extent were Alexander’s conquests responsible for the creation of this new “Hellenistic age”?
Second, what is the essence of this world and how does it differ from its Classical predecessor?
And third, what continuities and discontinuities can be identified between the Greek Classical and Hellenistic eras?
