The Peloponnesian War by Thucydides( Book )
1,572 editions published between 1427 and 2014 in 16 languages and held by 19,394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"'The greatest historian that ever lived'. Such was Macaulay's verdict on Thucydides (c. 460-400 BC) and his history of the Peloponnesian War, the momentous struggle between Athens and Sparta as rival powers and political systems that lasted for twenty-seven years from 431 to 404 BC, involved virtually the whole of the Greek world, and ended in the fall of Athens. Thucydides himself was a participant in the war; to his history he brings an awesome intellect, brilliant narrative, and penetrating analysis of the natureof power, as it affects both states and individuals. Of his own work Thucydides wrote: 'I shall be content if [my history] is judged useful by those who will want to have a clear understanding of what happened - and, such is the human condition, will happen again ... It was composed as a permanent legacy, not a showpiece for a single hearing.' So it has proved. Of the prose writers of Greece and Rome Thucydides has had more lasting influence on western thought than all but Plato and Aristotle. This new edition combines a masterly translationwith comprehensive supporting material"--Provided by publisher

Thucydides' theory of international relations : a lasting possession ( Book )
2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 372 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

Atene e Sparta erano state alleate durante la lotta contro l'impero persiano, sconfitto, nonostante la sua immensa potenza militare, dall'unione delle piccole città stato greche. Ma, solo mezzo secolo dopo, la loro rivalità scatenò una guerra che sarebbe durata tre decenni, avrebbe causato uccisioni e devastazioni mai viste prima e avrebbe determinato il rovesciamento della tendenza verso la democrazia. Questa guerra spaventosa, che per la sua importanza e le sue conseguenze può essere considerata una vera e propria guerra mondiale della Grecia classica, rappresenta un momento fondamentale della storia dell'Occidente ed è stata usata dagli storici di tutte le epoche come modello per comprendere e interpretare conflitti di ogni genere. La storia della guerra del Peloponneso è stata raccontata da uno dei più grandi storici dell'antichità, Tucidide, che partecipò effettivamente ai combattimenti. Sfortunatamente la sua cronaca, che è anche uno dei fondamenti del metodo storico e della filosofia politica, si interrompe sette anni prima della fine del conflitto
