The landmark Thucydides : a comprehensive guide to the Peloponnesian War by Thucydides( Book )

78 editions published between 1866 and 2013 in English and held by 2,335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Uninitiated reader. Written centuries before the rise of modern historiography. Thucydides' narrative is not continuous or linear. His authoritative chronicle of what he considered the greatest war of all time is rigorous and meticulous, yet omits the many aids to comprehension modern readers take for granted - such as brief biographies of the story's main characters, maps and other visual enhancements, and background on the military, cultural, and political traditions

The history of the Peloponnesian war by Thucydides( Book )

69 editions published between 1874 and 2012 in English and held by 1,377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thucydides wrote the story of the first democracy in history, and of the fortunes and fall of its empire, but his pages contain the modern world-scene in miniature. Ancient Greece is twentieth-century Europe, incapable of union, tearing itself to pieces in wars it did not desire but could not avoid. Here are familiar modern phenomena -- democracy and imperialism, the class struggle, the revolutionary spirit, the technique of aggression, cynical Real-politik, the importance of sea-power, even quisling and evacuation problems -- together with a brilliant account of campaigning in Sicily. The tale is told by a great political thinker, whose penetrating insight and dramatic power caused Macaulay to call him the 'greatest historian that ever lived'. His work, slightly abridged is here present in translation with an introduction and notes

History of the Peloponnesian war by Thucydides( Recording )

2 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thucydides's classic chronicle of the war between Athens and Sparta from 431 to 404 B.C. persists as one of the most brilliant histories of all time. As one who actually participated in the conflict, Thucydides recognized the effect it would have on the history of Greece above all other wars. With a passion for accuracy and a contempt for myth and romance, he compiled an exhaustively factual record of the disaster that eventually ended the Athenian empire. Conflicts between Athens and Sparta over shipping, trade, and colonial expansion came to a head in 431 B.C.E., when the entire Greek world was plunged into twenty-seven years of war. This watershed event concerns not only military prowess, but also perennial conflicts between might and right, between imperial powers and subject peoples. Extraordinary writing, scrupulous methods, and keen political insight make this account a joy to read
