Reviews

"To sum up, the collection of articles presented in this volume speaks to a clear and important theme concerning the ruling Argead clan and the expectations of the Macedonian elite. Carney has long sought to convince us that kings cannot be assessed without considering their closest companions, and the scholarly debates that she reports in the Afterword essays show how significant her work has been over the past forty years. This volume [offers] students more opportunity to delve into the family, friends, and enemies of Philip and Alexander." --Alexis Q. Castor, Franklin & Marshall College, Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2016.08.32

Castor, Franklin & Marshall College, Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2016.08.32 "Carney has made a significant contribution to the study of Macedon and Macedonians. This collection of articles offers readers a chance to appreciate its scope and development, and makes appreciable the gentle move in the story of Macedonian history away from individuals and events and toward structures. [...] The addition of reflection on the current state of scholarship and the development of the author's own work makes this book especially useful and instructive." --Samuel Gartland, Classical Journal 2016.08.10
