Original cloth. Near Fine, in near fine dust jacket. Oxford Classical Monographs. Publisher's list price: US$218.00. 'This book analyzes the narrative technique of Thucydides, relating his shifting uses of various techniques to his explanatory aims, and showing how he narrates the progression of one war and at the same time exposes various truths about the human condition' (Oxford University Press Web site). 'Stimulating and important. . . . Rood has much to say that is new and exciting. He has brought to the task wide reading and a great sensitivity to his author, and he has applied the techniques of narratology to Thucydides' text (dare I say, to any ancient historical text) more expertly than anyone before. . . . A rich and sensitive reading of Thucydides. . . . The fundamental starting point for future analyses' (Bryn Mawr Classical Review). 'A careful and subtle book, and a very important one for historians as well as literary students of Thucydides. . . A really accomplished work of scholarship' (Classical Philology). 'Rood succeeds admirably and convincingly in showing how internal disunity led to Athens' defeat in war. . . . The real merit of Rood's study consists in the detail with which he supports his contentions' (Classical World). 'All students of Thucydides will benefit from this book, and undergraduates will be particularly well served by the introduction, which offers an unbeatable summary of the Peloponnesian War and overview of Thucydides' oeuvre' (The Classical Outlook).

War is a harsh teacher wrote Thucydides in the fifth century BC. Rood analyses the techniques through which Thucydides'' narrative explains the origin and course of the Peloponnesian War and exposes harsh truths about how individuals and states behave. Rood concentrates on how the use oftechniques, such as selectivity, interaction of speech and narrative, and manipulation of time and perspective, points at one level to general human constraints, at another to the self-destructiveness of Athen''s imperial power. The book explores some techniques that have received little attentionand offers new ways of reading others; it gives new insight into Thucydides'' sophistication and the way he relates to his predecessors. It is also important for its attempts to refute views that Thucydides'' History is made up of different compositional strata or inspired by pro-Athenian bias. Andit addresses directly the way modern historians use Thucydides,, contributes to the contemporary debate over narrative history, and shows the value of applying some of the concepts of recent narrative theory to historical texts.
