Thucydides' History of the Peloponnesian War gives the account of the struggle between Athens and Sparta. He writes as a Stategos, or General, of Athens who participated in the war itself. This was required reading for me as a student of Political Science and history. I lost my college copy long ago and was pleased to replace it with this Barnes and Noble copy. The translation is good and the prices is excellent. I found the footnotes helpful as well. For those new to Thucydides and Greek history this book could prove tough but I still recommend it since it is a primary souce. I highly recommend books by Bagnall and Kagan on the Peloponnesian War to go along with this fine copy.

This is a review of the e-book version. The footnotes work very well, and there are a LOT of them. However, there are numerous distracting scan errors in the text. Some would have been caught by even a cursory proof-reading, such as lists of numbers including thigs like "4z8" and "43i." The combined lowercase "ae" is frequently presented as "x," which rather changes the way the word is pronounced! I don't understand why more care wasn't taken in proofreading this volume. All those footnotes must have take a lot of work to prepare; why not finish the job by tidying up the text itself? B&N can do better.
