His central role in the Peloponnesian War and friendship with Socrates mark him as a towering figure of Ancient Greece. Known as a serial traitor he had enemies aplenty. In Nemesis: Alcibiades & the Fall of Athens, David Stuttard details the volatile life Alcibiades led, in all its spellbinding turbulence. David is a graduate of St Andrews, and has taught Classics across the country, and we are delighted to welcome him to the bookshop.
