Russell Meiggs provides a comprehensive survey of the events, issues, and controversies of the period in Athens from 480 to 404 BC. His prose is easy to follow and his arguments are generally persuasive. The book, however, is aimed at an informed reader with some knowledge of Greek. Also, since the book is a survey, he presents less of a chronological presentation than a survey of topics.
