A New History of the Peloponnesian War


A New historical past of the Peloponnesian War is an ebook-only omnibus variation that comes with all 4 volumes of Donald Kagan's acclaimed account of the warfare among Athens and Sparta (431–404 B.C.): The Outbreak of the Peloponnesian conflict, The Archidamian warfare, The Peace of Nicias and the Sicilian Expedition, and The Fall of the Athenian Empire. Reviewing the four-volume set in The New Yorker, George Steiner wrote, "The temptation to acclaim Kagan's 4 volumes because the finest paintings of heritage produced in North the United States within the 20th century is shiny. . . . this is an fulfillment that not just honors the standards of dispassion and of unstinting scruple which mark the simplest of recent historicism yet honors its readers."

All 4 volumes also are bought individually as either print books and ebooks.
