|Reviews: Thucydides. Man's place in history|
|Bryn Mawr Classical Review|
Review, Anglo Hellenic Review, Spring, 2004, p20
This work will delight careful readers of Thucydides; first and foremost because it is a quietly brilliant demonstration of close reading as an act of interpretationJbut also because -albeit inadvertently - this work is a valuable addition to the history of scholarship on Thucydides...For example, chapter 2 'Retrospective: The State of Thucydidean Studies; Methodology' offers a retrospective of Thucydidean studies from the perspective of 1966. For readers like myself, who could only grope after the meaning of the German edition, the publication of this accessible English edition is a gift.
