A Conversation with Dr. Maas on Thucydides — Rice Historical Review

"We should respect Thucydides’ objectivity and his relentless effort to record the facts correctly. We also have to respect the fact that he is working with the data he has so painstakingly assembled. He is not simply stating that the facts speak for themselves, and he points the facts in the direction that he thinks can best illuminate his analysis. He seeks objectivity and also seeks honesty. When we follow Thucydides and attempt historical investigation, we must be honest above all other things. Thucydides is one of the most relentlessly self-aware and honest political analysts I have ever read."

The Rice Historical Review just published our interview with Dr. Maas on Thucydides's History of the Peloponnesian War. Check it out here:

http://www.ricehistoricalreview.org/short-form/2020/10/30/a-conversation-with-dr-maas-on-thucydides

Dr. Maas is the William Gaines Twyman Professor of History at Rice University. His research interests are in ancient Greece and Rome, late antiquity and early Byzantium. Spencer: A political scientist, Graham Allison, used the phrase the “Thucydides Trap” to refer to the idea that war is always

Here’s why our lovely co-editor, Victoria Saeki-Serna, joined the RHR:
“I joined the Rice Historical Review because history allows us to understand how we arrived to present events - if we help others understand the past and be aware of how it influences today we will all be better equipped to construct a brighter future”

This year, you may apply to be a new Assistant Director of Copyediting, Podcasting, Short Form, Social Media, or the Racial Injustice Project!
