Sorry, this item is now out of stock.

Donald Kagan, renowned for his seminal four-volume history of the Peloponnesian War, here turns his attention from the war itself to its first historian: Thucydides. In a study that reflects on the practice of history and its value, Kagan explores the thought of Thucydides, his experience of the war and the 'spectacular leap into modernity' as he abandoned the will of gods or individual men as explaining historical events in favour of a general analysis of the behaviour of men in society. Felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
