James Romm, author of Ghost on the Throne: The Death of Alexander the Great and the Bloody Fight for His Empire, tells how Alexander the Great—perhaps history’s most commanding leader—united his empire through titanic will, and how his death at 32 spelled the end of that unity.
Hear the dramatic sage of the empire’s collapse after Alexander’s death and about the mentally damaged half brother and posthumously born son who followed him, both elevated to kingship.
This program includes a round-table lunch discussion with the speakers immediately following the talk.
Ticket and Lunch from $40.
James Romm, Professor of Classics at Bard College, is the author of Ghost on the Throne: The Death of Alexander the Great and the Bloody Fight for His Empire. He is also the author of The Edges of the Earth in Ancient Thought and Herodotus.
