'Never before has the reader had explained to him with such clarity
and penetration exactly what Thucydides' Greek means and why ...
Rusten's treatment of the Funeral Speech ... is a tour de force ...
For those who want really to get to grips with Thucydides' language
and are qualified to do so, Rusten is indispensable.' JACT
"The volume contains an intelligent and readable introduction that treats Thucydides' life, historiographical tendencies, and stylistic idiosyncrasies; a text, printed with only a brief critical apparatus in the appendix; and a full commentary with helpful maps...The commentary is simply superb."
