Alexander the Great/Philip Freeman
He was only thirty-two years old when he died, but in his short life Alexander the Great reshaped the world. Today, IPR's Charity Nebbe talks with author Philip Freeman of Decorah about the life and legend of the King of Macedon. Freeman's new book is titled, appropriately enough, "Alexander the Great" (Simon & Schuster). Freeman is a Professor of Classics at Luther College.
