“Fear, Honor, and Interest:” Thucydides and the Outbreak of the American Civil War

Richard “Dick” Sommers
Thursday, 8:30 am – 9:15 am 

Description: This presentation offers a different perspective on the causes of the American Civil War — a perspective propounded by the ancient Greek general and historian Thucydides in the 5th Century, B.C. Far from being unique to his time and place, his principles endure through the ages, right up to today. They may help us understand the outbreak of our own Civil War.
