Antigonus Gonatas assumed the title of King of Macedonia in 283 BC; he became the undisputed ruler of Macedonia in 276 BC and reigned for more than forty years. Blunt, honest and tenacious, Antigonus won not only Macedonia, but also its people. Pragmatic and occasionally ruthless, he was a well-educated man with a keen interest in philosophy. He gathered about him poets, philosophers and historians; his long reign, despite vicissitudes, re-established Macedonia as a nation.Janice J. Gabbert portrays the eventful life of this enigmatic king in a lively and engaging manner. Her aim is to trace the political career of a man about whose life almost no official records survive. Taking into account the most recent epigraphical evidence, the author brings to life a fascinating political figure. This is the first study entirely devoted to Antigonus for over eighty years, and essential reading for those interested in the history of the Successors of Alexander.

Review:

Written in a concise and straightforward style, it provides a good overview of one of the most intriguing of the Macedonian monarchs. Janice W. Gabbert has done us a great service in providing an accessible and well-written biography of one of the most important, and overlooked, figures in Hellenistic history.
–Craige Championclassical world
The work is well-researched, sensible, and intelligent. Historians of the Hellenistic world will consult it with profit. -- Erich S.Gruen, Scripta Classica Isra
