From the Greek victory over Persian forces on the field of Plataea to the Athenian blockade of the rebel city of Potidaea―key events in the Persian and Peloponnesian wars, respectively―the half-century of Greek history known as the pentecontaetia is an era for which sources are few and interpretation is controversial. Historian E. Badian brings together six essays―one new and five revised for this edition―that shed new light on this key period.
