Most editions of single books of Thucydides are nearly 100
years old, and concentrate heavily on textual and linguistic
matters. This new edition of Book II, the book in which
Thucydides' main narrative of the Peloponnesian war begins,
contains an introduction, a Greek text, an English translation,
and a commentary which should be useful not only to specialists
but also to readers who know little or no Greek. Matters of texts
and language are discussed when necessary, but the emphasis is on
the war which formed Thucydides' subject matter, and on the way
in which he has chosen to treat the subject. Greek text with
facing-page translation, commentary and introduction.
