History of the Peloponnesian War by Thucydides( Book )

2,626 editions published between 1400 and 2020 in 21 languages and held by 23,748 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written four hundred years before the birth of Christ, this detailed contemporary account of the long life-and-death struggle between Athens an Sparta stands an excellent chance of fulfilling its author's ambitious claim that his writing was designed to last forever. Thucydides himself (c-460-400 B.C.) was an Athenian and achieved the rank of general in the earlier stages of the war. He applied thereafter a passion for accuracy and a contempt for myth and romance in compiling this factual record of a disastrous conflict. A translation of Thucydides' history of the wars between Athens and Sparta with introduction, notes, bibliography, and maps

"Thucydides (/?ju?sddi?z/; Ancient Greek: ??????????, Thoukydídēs; c. 460 ? c. 395 BC) was a Greek historian and Athenian general. His History of the Peloponnesian War recounts the 5th century BC war between Sparta and Athens to the year 411 BC. Thucydides has been dubbed the father of "scientific history", because of his strict standards of evidence-gathering and analysis in terms of cause and effect without reference to intervention by the gods, as outlined in his introduction to his work."--Wikipedia

Thucydides. The war of the Peloponnesians and the Athenians by Thucydides( )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and Greek, Ancient and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thucydides' classic work is a foundational text in the history of Western political thought. His narrative of the great war between Athens and Sparta in the fifth century BC is now seen as a highly sophisticated study of the nature of political power itself: its exercise and effects, its agents and victims, and the arguments through which it is defended and deployed. It is therefore increasingly read as a text in politics, international relations and political theory, whose students will find in Thucydides many striking contemporary resonances. This edition seeks to present the author and the text in their proper historical context. The new translation is particularly sensitive to the risks of anachronism, and the notes and extensive reference material provide students with all the necessary historical, cultural and linguistic background they need to engage with the text on its own terms

Thucydides' theory of international relations : a lasting possession( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout history, readers of Thucydides' History of the Peloponnesian War have sought to apply its lessons to the problems of their times. In that tradition, the authors of these essays explore Thucydides' observations on the human condition in an effort to comprehend their modern world more than 2,400 years later." "The nine contributors find that Thucydides is not only the descriptive historian he is commonly said to be, but also a sophisticated theorist of international relations who emphasized the use of history to interpret the international conditions of his day and who had a profound understanding of realism and pluralism, of the relationship between internal and international politics, and of the role of culture in world affairs."--Jacket
How to think about war : an ancient guide to foreign policy : speeches from The History of the Peloponnesian War by Thucydides( )

7 editions published in 2019 in English and Greek, Ancient and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why do nations go to war? What are citizens willing to die for? What justifies foreign invasion? And does might always make right? For nearly 2,500 years, students, politicians, political thinkers, and military leaders have read the eloquent and shrewd speeches in Thucydides's History of the Peloponnesian War for profound insights into military conflict, diplomacy, and the behavior of people and countries in times of crisis. How to Think about War presents the most influential and compelling of these speeches in an elegant new translation by classicist Johanna Hanink, accompanied by an enlightening introduction, informative headnotes, and the original Greek on facing pages. The result is an ideally accessible introduction to Thucydides's long and challenging History. Thucydides intended his account of the clash between classical Greece's mightiest powers--Athens and Sparta--to be a "possession for all time." Today, it remains a foundational work for the study not only of ancient history but also contemporary politics and international relations. How to Think about War features speeches that have earned the History its celebrated status--all of those delivered before the Athenian Assembly, as well as Pericles's funeral oration and the notoriously ruthless "Melian Dialogue." Organized by key debates, these complex speeches reveal the recklessness, cruelty, and realpolitik of Athenian warfighting and imperialism. The first English-language collection of speeches from Thucydides in nearly half a century, How to Think about War takes readers straight to the heart of this timeless thinker
