Summary note:
This volume focuses on ideas of kingship and power in the Seleukid Empire, specifically the role of usurpers. Redefining the king as only one of several political players, it advances a political history predicated on social power and argues that despite its strong rulers the empire was structurally weak and the position of its kings precarious.
