Abstract

185 have learned so much and from which I shall continue to learn with so much respect as from this edition of Euripides' great and difficult tragedy. SANTPOORT-ZUID, Duinlustparkweg 46 J. C. KAMERBEEK DE NOVIS LIBRIS IUDICIA F. E. ADCOCK, Thucydides and his History. Cambridge, University Press, 1963. 140 p. Pr. sh. 21/-. This work is a very welcome contribution to the vivid discussion to which Thucydides' History keeps challenging the sagacity of historians and hellenists. The author adheres to the sound conviction that in the first chapters of Book I Th. meant what he says, viz. that he began to write immediately after the war broke out and that the speeches in his work contain the purpose and the purport of what was actually said. He does not enter into debate with all the well-known opponents of this view but tries to illustrate its probability in a calm and often shrewd way. In the past, however recent 1), Th. has too often been labelled as a moralist or e.g. his version of Pericles' Funeral Speech as a vaticinium ex eventu, without any comprehension of his intellectual character and the purpose he had in writing his History.
