Song of Wrath: The Peloponnesian War Begins

By Lenden, J.E. [Ted]

New York, New York, U.S.A.: Basic Books, 2010. Song of Wrath tells the story of Athens’ Ten Years’ War (431- 421 BC) against grim Sparta, the first decade of the terrible Peloponnesian War that turned the Golden Age of Greece to lead. Historian J.E. Lendon presents a sweeping tale of pitched battles by land and sea, sieges, sacks, raids, and deeds of cruelty and guile - along with courageous acts of mercy, surprising charity, austere restraint, and arrogant resistance. Recounting the rise of democratic Athens to great-power status, and the resulting fury of authoritarian Sparta, Greece’s traditional leader, Lendon portrays the causes and strategy of the war as a duel over national honor, a series of acts of revenge. A story of new pride challenging old, Song of Wrath is the first work of Ancient Greek history for the post-cold-war generation. 576p. . 1st US Edition. Hardcover. New/New.
