Synopsis

Donald Kagan-Yale's Sterling Professor of Classics and History-delivers a compelling new look at revisionism in Thucydides' classic History of the Peloponnesian War. To determine how accurate and dispassionate the Athenian general really was, Kagan exposes his epic to an enlightening and thorough analysis. Using contemporary and modern sources, Kagan reveals the exiled aristocrat's biases, prejudices, and his clear intention to spin events in his own way.
