    Story
    (25)

    This course addresses three wars fought in antiquity, each of which had - even 2,000 years and more later - a decisive effect in shaping our communal sense of who we are, not only in Europe, but throughout the European cultural diaspora, in the Americas, in Oceania, and to some degree, at least, in Asia and Africa as well - wherever, in short, Western values hold.

    D. Littman says: "a good overview of 3 ancient wars"
    "OK, not great, but OK"

    Story
    Where does The Modern Scholar rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Medium. The Great Courses presentation of the Peloponnesian War by Kenneth Harl is far more thorough and accurate.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The connections drawn between the 3 wars


    How could the performance have been better?

    More detail on the sources as well as the inaccuracies and biases of the sources (e.g.., Thucydides bias as an Athenian)


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes
