Oct 2010
The Vast majority of his empire was more Persian than Greek,

The Alexander's Empire was basically a new Macedonian top level placed on top of the Existing Persian Empire. Making minimal chnages to teh way the empire worked/governed was going to minimizse friction. Wholeslae chnages to society would have made running the Empire harder (at least in teh short term)
