Thirty-six lectures of thirty minutes each talking about Peloponnesian War in which the ancient Greek historian Thucydides called it "a war like no other"--Arguably the greatest in the history of the world up to that time. The Peloponnesian War pitted Athens and her allies against a league of city-states headed by Sparta. Thucydides's eyewitness account of the war has been a classic for 24 centuries and is still studied for its profound truths about the nature of human strife. In The Peloponnesian War, Professor Kenneth Harl draws on this masterpiece and other ancient sources to give you a full picture of the Greek world in uneasy peace and then all-out war in the late 5th century B.C. Course guidebook includes professor biography, statement of course scope, lecture outlines and notes, timeline, glossary, and bibliography.
