Summary
In accordance with the fashion current at the time, the "downfall" of Alexander the Great, after he accomplished more than any ordinary human could even hope to dream about, has been variously attributed to hubris, the influence of his mother, and homosexuality. It should come as no surprise in today's climate that we find it attributed to alcoholism. O'Brien is not known as an eminent scholar on Alexander or ancient Greece, but on alcohol.
