Timeline and Cast of Characters for James Romm's Ghost on the Throne

Published by Alfred A. Knopf
In Ghost on the Throne, James Romm, brilliant classicist and storyteller, tells the galvanizing saga of the men who followed Alexander the Great and found themselves incapable of preserving his empire. The result was the undoing of a world, formerly united in a single empire, now ripped apart into a nightmare of warring nation-states struggling for domination, the template of our own times.
