Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. xxxiii-xxxv) and index.

About the Author

Paul Woodruff is Professor of Philosophy, University of Texas at Austin.
