Review:

"The facility of this reader together with its notes and explanations strongly complement its main strength: the handsome presentation of selections from all eight books of the "Histories" in one volume. Nagy has done a great service to teachers, students, and budding Thucydides enthusiasts everywhere."
--David G. Bonagura, Jr., "Kellenberg Memorial High School"

"Precious little has been done for the fledgling Greek student who wants to read the History but needs help with forms, syntax, and the peculiarities of Thucydides' style. Nagy has changed the whole landscape. His Reader offers selections from every book, aimed at students who still need reminders about genitive absolutes and supplementary participles. His book has no rival, because we readers of Thucydides have had to wait so long for someone to do the job. In reading Nagy's commentary, my sad emotion came from my sorrow that I hadn't had a book like this in my two Thucydides courses."
--Lee Fratantuono, "Ohio Wesleyan University"
