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

History of the Peloponnesian war by Thucydides( Recording )

2 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and held by 40 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
