The scope of this volume well justifies its appearance in what some may feel is an over-traded 'handbook' market. For it covers its field, Macedonia, way beyond its customary classical periods with Carolyn Snively's chapter 'Macedonia in Late Antiquity' (545-71) and the treatment of contemporary Balkan politics in Loring Danforth's 'Ancient Macedonia, Alexander the Great and the Star or Sun of Vergina: National Symbols and the Conflict between Greece and the Republic of Macedonia' (572-98); and it ranges beyond the familiar boundaries by offering very useful complementary chapters on Thessaly, Illyria, Epirus and Thrace.
