Kings and Colonists
Aspects of Macedonian Imperialism
Series:
Columbia Studies in the Classical Tradition, Volume: 22

Kings and Colonists deals with Macedonian imperialism in the 4th-2nd centuries BCE, the time of King Philip II and Alexander the Great, and of the dynasties of Alexander's successors, with special emphasis on western Asia. The first part of the book examines the origins of Macedonian imperialism in Philip II's state-building activity, and discusses how the Macedonian rulers used propaganda to justify themselves to their Macedonian and Greek supporters, and how they interacted with the autonomous Greek cities. The second part examines different levels of the personnel of imperial control, trying to see in each case what these men contributed to and got out of the empire. A final chapter looks at the effects of this imperialism on the Macedonian homeland, countering some modern arguments that the empire had a disastrous effect on Macedonian manpower.

Richard A. Billows, Ph.D. (1985) in Ancient History, University of California at Berkeley, is Associate Professor of History at Columbia University. His publications include articles on Hellenistic and Roman Republican history.
