This is the long-awaited second volume of a magisterial commentary on the work of the historian Arrian. It deals in depth with a crucial period (329-326 B.C.) of the reign of Alexander the Great, discussing some of the earliest datable evidence for the history of Central Asia and Pakistan, and analyzing Alexander's views of sovereignty and divinity."This is a book of lasting value by the acknowledged expert. I urge purchase and that the third volume appear before 2010 A.D.."--Religious Studies Review"... a wide range of topics to daunt the spirtis of all but the most erudite and perceptive commentator. But that is just what Brian Bosworth is, and the results of his labours do not disappoint. Bosworth's Commentary serves as an excellent guide to Arrian's work and other sources, in particular, and for the history of Alexander in general. To call it indispensable is to state the obvious."--Bryn Mawr Classical Review
