Designed for students with little or no background in ancient Greek language and culture, this collection of extracts from The History of the Peloponnesian War includes those passages that shed most light on Thucydides' political theory--famous as well as important but lesser-known pieces frequently overlooked by nonspecialists. Newly translated into spare, vigorous English, and situated within a connective narrative framework, Woodruff's selections will be of special interest to instructors in political theory and Greek civilization. Includes maps, notes, glossary.
Paul Woodruff is Professor of Philosophy, University of Texas at Austin.
. . . the selections go much deeper than the standard collection of the best-known speeches . . . in Woodruff's work I see a clear thread going through important passages and making them accessible to the reader.--Alfonso Gómez-Lobo, Georgetown University
This text is a very readable, modern, American English translation. It remains true to the original Greek. The introductory materials are useful, sane, and meet the needs of a wide range of undergraduates. Maps are easy to read and very useful.--Marie T. Gingras, University of Colorado
