Important sections on the funeral oration, the account of the plague of Athens and the obituary of Pericles are stressed in a Greek text supplemented by an English introduction and commentary.
"[Hammond's] new translation of Thucydides is a triumph. Fluent yet sinewy, it responds brilliantly to the historian's challenging prose. It is both accurate and lucid. Indeed, its only possible flaw is that it can at times be rather more comprehensible than Thucydides himself! "-Journal of Classical Teaching
"A substantial work, but with wonderful readabilityand lightness of touch. The book is excellent value for money and the obvious choice for any reader of Thucydides."-The Anglo-Hellenic Review
"The most accurate and readable [translation] we now have." -ARION
