This text on Thucydides is translated from German, a print of the original 1966 volume, it also has two additional chapters which reflect the author's subsequent work. The book liberates Thucydides from the nationalist limits which modern interpreters have imposed and then demonstrates the technique whereby Thucydides constructs his work as interplay, using narrative to comment on the speeches of politicians, to confirm, or often to refute, his speakers' analyses. It reveals, as the core of Thucydides' political anthropology, a study in the fallibility of human projections and especially the track from optimistic planning to irremediable suffering in the field of foreign policy.
