American Ideals 22. Alexander the Great
Konvitz, Milton R.
Professor Konvitz sets Alexander in his historical context as the greatest conqueror in human history. Alexander spread Greek culture and learning throughout his empire by establishing garrisons and cities that stretched from Greece in the west to India in the east. He also sought to assimilate the best of the other cultures into his Hellenistic civilization.
