Identifier: Coll-1310/3/1/2/28

Scope and Contents

The speech parallels World Wars I and II with that of Peloponnesian War, particularly as the Peloponnesian war was between a democracy and a totalitarian state.

Thomson read out Pericles' speech, but this is not reproduced in his notes. The speech is written on the back of a rougher, earlier draft.
