Although Alexander the Great's empire was short-lived, the Hellenistic civilization it produced shaped the course of political, social, and cultural development on three continents (Africa, Asia, Europe). The essay argues that the Hellenistic period represented one of the most intense and fruitful eras of global, intercultural exchange in the classical age.
