Editorial Reviews

"Like others in the publisher's Companions to the Ancient World series, this volume is intended primarily as an engaging resource for students new to the subject and scholars in related fields, and yet these "companions" are also useful for scholars within the fields under consideration who seek well-rounded, up-to-date references." (Booknews, 1 February 2011)

"In this volume editor Roisman (classics, Colby College) and Worthington (history, U. of Missouri) have brought together work from an international roster of contributors. The lead article discusses the dramatic changes in scholarly emphasis of the last 30 years that have brought ancient Macedonia to the fore, in particular increased attention to the role played by Alexander the Great's father. Ten maps and a set of 28 plates support this well-organized collection of 27 contributed chapters. Like others in the publisher's Companions to the Ancient World series, this volume is intended primarily as an engaging resource for students new to the subject and scholars in related fields, and yet these "companions" are also useful for scholars within the fields under consideration who seek well-rounded, up-to-date references. Articles are specially commissioned to cover political, military, social, economic and cultural history, as well as material culture." (Reference and Research Book News, February 2011)"Overall, this Companion provides a lucid and comprehensive introduction to the study of ancient Macedonia." (The Anglo-Hellenic Review, 1 March 2011)
