Thucydides' great history of the war between Athens and Sparta from 431 to 404 B.C. persists as one of the most brilliant histories of all times. This watershed event in Athenian civilization 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.
