The Meaning and Nature of War

May 8, 2014 With Donald Kagan

With Donald Kagan of Yale University we discuss the great conflict between Athens and Sparta, as originally reported and explained by one of the generals, Thucydides, who is still regarded as “the father of history.” This conversation from 2003 illuminates the causes, nature and consequences of war as they were twenty five hundred years ago and still are today.
