Spent part of my breakfast reading time looking for the location of Corcyra. [Its location was a shock, given its distance from Corinth and Athens.]
The other part was regretting that I didn't read Thucydides in high school. The eloquent arguments made in Athens by the emissaries of Corcyra and Corinth should be studied in law school.
This also sparked a recollection of what historian Alan Bullock wrote in Hitler and Stalin: Parallel Lives:
"Looking back, I cannot think of a better preparation for writing about Hitler and Stalin than a close study of Thucydides, Tacitus, and those sections of Aristotle's Politics that deal with the Greek experience of tyranny."
