'Thucydides and the Idea of History' shortlisted for Runciman Award

1 May 2015

Professor Neville Morley's book Thucydides and the Idea of History(I.B. Tauris, 2014) has been included on the shortlist for the 2015 Runciman Award. The Runciman Award, named in honour of the late Sir Steven Runciman and generously sponsored by the National Bank of Greece, is awarded by the Anglo-Hellenic League to a book on Greece or some aspect of the Hellenic scene. Books published in English anywhere in the world are eligible for the Award. The aim of the award, first presented in 1986, is to stimulate interest in Greek history and culture from earliest times to the present; to reward and encourage good and accessible writing, of which Sir Steven’s works are an example; and to promote wider knowledge and understanding of Greece’s contribution to civilization and values. The award will be made in June.
