Books that Changed Humanity: The History of the Peloponnesian War (Thucydides)

Presented by ANU College of Arts & Social Sciences

Books that Changed Humanity is an initiative of the Humanities Research Centre, based at the Australian National University. The HRC invites experts to introduce and lead discussion of major texts from a variety of cultural traditions, all of which have informed the way we understand ourselves both individually and collectively as human beings.

Join us as Dr Peter Londey (School of Literature, Languages and Linguistics) introduces and discusses Thucydides' historical account of the clash between Sparta and Athens, The History of the Peloponnesian War. 

All members of the public are welcome to come, listen, and share their thoughts about this great work of literature.
