Description

BOOK DESCRIPTION
Alexander the Great's campaigns in the East brought the Greek and Eastern worlds in closer contact than was possible in previous centuries. While Greeks and non-Greeks had lived alongside each other for centuries before Alexander's conquest of the East, it was during the Hellenistic period that a more direct interaction of cultures occurred. The material evidence from the lands that formed part of Alexander's empire, in combination with contemporary theoretical approaches, can hopefully lead to attempts to answer why specific borrowings occurred as well as how such borrowings are interpreted by contemporary scholars. This volume is a direct result of the broader cross-cultural research interests of the editors.
