Heath, M. (1990) Thucydides' political judgement. Liverpool Classical Monthly, 15. pp. 158-160. ISSN 0309-3700
After reporting the death of Pericles Thucycides gives an assessment of his leadership, adding by way of contrast some comments on the situation which developed in Athens subsequently (2.65.7-13). These comments provide an analysis of Athens’ defeat in the war which many scholars have found hard to reconcile with Thucydides’ own narrative.
