A Conversation with Prof. James Romm about his new book: Ghost on the Throne: The Death of Alexander the Great and the War for Crown and Empire

September 22, 2011

When I e-mailed Professor Romm to set up a date to do the radio show I mentioned how this book read like a mystery novel. I realize now that I was wrong with that assessment. It’s not a mystery but a political thriller.

You may ask: Thriller? How can there be any intrigue when we all know what happened?

But do we? Do we really know what happened back in 323 B.C. and the years that immediately followed?

We know the great empire that Alexander built during his lifetime suddenly came apart but why? And how? What do we know of the double-dealing? The back-stabbing? The lies? The murders? What do we know of the personalities involved? Precious little.
