On Justice, Power, & Human Nature: Selections from "History of the Peloponnesian War"by Thucydides
Synopses & Reviews
Designed for students with little or no background in ancient Greek language and culture, this collection of extracts from The History of the Peloponnesian War includes those passages that shed most light on Thucydides’ political theory--famous as well as important but lesser-known pieces frequently overlooked by nonspecialists. Newly translated into spare, vigorous English, and situated within a connective narrative framework, Woodruff’s selections will be of special interest to instructors in political theory and Greek civilization. Includes maps, notes, glossary.
Includes bibliographical references (p. xxxiii-xxxv) and index.
