First published in 1925, this thoughtful volume constitutes an excellent English introduction to one of the great ancient historians. Originating from its author’s re-reading of Thucydides during World War I, it sought to place Thucydides not as the production of a remote world, but instead of one instilled with present life and reality. Dealing especially well with Thucydides’ method as a historian, this volume focuses less on military aspects and more on Thucydides’ approach to foreign policy, democracy, imperialism and the struggle for power.
