Over the centuries, historians’ views of Alexander the Great have oscillated from the extreme positive, a sort of bright star illuminating the world, to extreme negative, a black hole of destruction. On the one hand, Alexander has been presented as a hideous and degenerate warlord, thirsty for power and obsessed with the idea that he was a god, a force of darkness bringing death and destruction wherever he went. On the other, he has been seen as a brave visionary of a new civilized world, in which people live in peace and prosperity, without national or racial discrimination.
