"Altogether, this edition in a crowded field offers many unique annotations complementing its fresh and accurate translation."
Donald Lateiner, Ancient History Bulletin
"... an extremely useful edition for its re-situation of Thucydides in his own context, especially for the large numbers of readers of Thucydides in disciplines outside the classics. It is no small achievement to convey in modern English the literary qualities of this most political of ancient historians."
Liz Sawyer, Oxonian Review
"...a fine addition to the Cambridge Texts in the History of Political Thought series ... its excellent footnotes will make it a worthy [addition] to any reading list."
Benjamin Earley, The Classical Review
Thucydides' classic work is a foundational text in the history of Western political thought. This new translation includes extensive reference material for non-specialists, including maps, glossaries, biographies, chronological charts, notes and an appendix of ancient sources in translation.
