THE PELOPONNESIAN WAR
“The best account now available.”—Los Angeles
Times Book Review. “Kagan unravels with skill
and clarity the complexities of a long and often
confusing war.”—Jasper Griffin, Oxford Univ.,
The New York Review of Books. “Drawing on
incomparable knowledge as a classicist, international relations theorist and military historian,
Donald Kagan...has devoted a single volume to
guiding us through that epic of miscalculation,
hubris and strategic overreach, supplying supplemental observations and correctives to
Thucydides’ classic History of the Peloponnesian
War.”—The Washington Post. 9 maps.
