5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic made clear, 18 Jan. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Landmark Thucydides (Hardcover)
It is hard to imagine, no, I cannot imagine, a clearer, more lucid setting out of a great classic work. Strassler's abundant maps, well-thought-out appendices and helpful footnotes clear the path for the reader through an absolutely gripping, but not always transparent, work.
First credit must go, of course, to Thucydides for his monumental effort, his mastery of an enormously complex chronicle of events and his profound insights into the personalities and the political interests which impelled the events of the war. But Strassler has provided the means for any interested amateur reader of history to enjoy fully and at first reading this marvelous epic. This is perhaps the best presentation of a classic work I have ever encountered. Well done!
