A Handbook to the Reception of Thucydides offers an invaluable guide to the reception of Thucydides and his work. Through original essays by established and emerging scholars, this handbook explores the main strands of reception and the most salient contexts in which Thucydides has been read and appropriated.

Thucydides’ influence has spread across many disciplines and sub-disciplines, including historiography, political theory, international relations and strategic studies. Essays explore these domains as well as other literary, cultural and historical contexts; contributors engage with a variety of extant interpretations while developing new approaches to Thucydides’ work.  Chapters focus on different aspects of Thucydides’ writing; his role as a historian and his contribution to the development of historiography; his status as a political and strategic thinker; the influence of academic and non-academic readings of The History; and additional Thucydidean themes. The handbook concludes with personal reflections by eminent scholars on the significance and perennial importance of Thucydides’ work for this generation and for generations to come.
