The history of the Peloponnesian War. Translated from the Greek of Thucydides. To which are annexed, three preliminary discourses

Written by Thucydides around 400 AD, The History of the Peloponnesian War is a meticulous account by the Athenian general of the extended struggle that raged between Athens and Sparta for the better part of twenty years. Thucydides eschews the romance of heroics and dramatics and his precise and thorough account of the ill-fated conflict is one of the first surviving scholarly works of history.

  • "Written nearly four hundred years before the birth of Christ, this detailed contemporary account of the long life-and-death struggle between Athens and Sparta stands an excellent chance of fulfulling its author's ambitious claim. Thucydides himself was an Athenian and fought in the war, about which he writes with an almost unique blend of scientific detachment and human compassion."@en

Barnes & Noble Classics pulls together a constellation of influences—biographical, historical, and literary—to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works. A monumental work unsurpassed for its brilliant description, accuracy, and penetrating insights, Thucydides' History of the Peloponnesian War is a spectacular eyewitness report of the war between Greece's two most powerful city-states, Athens and Sparta, as it unfolded during the fifth century B.C.The first recorded political and moral analysis of a nation's war policies, the History is a tragic story of virtue, ambition, and failed deterrence. All aspects of the conflict—from the battlefield strategies and the political landscape to the peoples' thoughts and feelings as the long war dragged on—are presented in startlingly vivid detail. From the treachery of Alcibiades and the disastrous invasion of Sicily to the plague that devastated Athens and Pericles' famous funeral oration, Thucydides has written more than a mere account of war. His History is nothing less than a classic Greek drama about the rise and fall of Athens. More than two thousand years have passed since the History was written, but its impact on modern politics, military strategy, and foreign relations has been timeless. Donald Lateiner teaches Greek, Latin, Ancient History and Comparative Folklore in the Humanities-Classics department at Ohio Wesleyan University. His scholarship focuses on Homer and Herodotus, and he has published a book on each. He also researches nonverbal behaviors in ancient literature."@en
