Professor Rhodes continues his edition of Thucydides' books on the Archidamian War with his edition of Book III, providing an Introduction (on Thucydides' history and on the Peloponnesian War), Greek text with selective critical apparatus and facing translation, and a commentary which should be useful not only to specialists but also to readers who know little or no Greek, and which assumes no previous acquaintance with Thucydides. Matters of text and language are discussed when necessary, but the emphasis is on the war which formed Thucydides' subject-matter and on the way in which he has chosen to treat the subject.

P. J. Rhodes was Professor of Ancient History and is now Honorary Professor and Emeritus Professor at the University of Durham. He wrote the Introduction and Notes for the Oxford World’s Classics translation of Thucydides and is writing a book on Thucydides for Bloomsbury; and his other books include The Athenian Boule, A Commentary on the Aristotelian Athenaion Politeia, A History of the Classical Greek World, 478–323 B.C., and in 2014 A Short History of Ancient Greece.
