First ever full-length biography of Ptolemy I in English. Incorporates Ptolemy's own "History of Alexander" into the account and assesses its veracity, including new arguments for when and why Ptolemy wrote it.
Removes Ptolemy from being a peripheral figure in Alexander's campaign and even in the Wars of the Successors, and sets him center stage in the history of his times.
