520    In The First European: A History of Alexander in the Age 
       of Empire, Pierre Briant examines the revival and 
       rewriting of the history of Alexander the Great in 18th-
       century Europe. To Enlightenment thinkers Alexander 
       exemplified the West and Europe, especially in his role as
       the conqueror of Asia. Classical texts, ancient history, 
       and the new science of archaeology were all deployed in 
       the service of European empire-building. Alexander was of 
       interest to a variety of scholars from different parts of 
       Europe - moralists, philosophers, economists, geographers,
       historians, and cartographers. In the course of the long 
       18th century, an entirely new image of the Macedonian 
       conqueror emerged, as the precedent of European political 
       and commercial expansion overseas.--|cProvided by
