Simon Hornblower, Professor of Classics and Ancient History, All Souls College, Oxford
"Hornblower's erudition is immense and illuminating, he's not afraid to use his imagination, and the political no less than the academic world will be in his debt for generations. That is no small achievement." - Peter Green, Times Literary Supplement Books of the Year 2009
"This wonderful book, beautifully presented by the publisher, with a superb index, sustains its life and energy over more than a thousand pages above all through conversation, in which the reader feels himself (or herself) included." - Malcolm Schofield, Times Literary Supplement
"The effort [Hornblower] has put into explicating Thucydides' text is monumental, and the historian is fortunate to have found a commentator of such
devotion." - John Marincola, Classical Review
"This immensely learned tome represents a fine and weighty ... summation of Hornblower's Imagnum opus" - Emily Baragwanath, Exemplaria Classica
