Robert Strassler

editor

Robert Strassler (MBA '61), a self-described scholar without credentials, worked for seven years on his own dime to produce an unlikely 1996 bestseller: *The Landmark Thucydides*, a reader-friendly version of the Greek philosopher's famously dense and convoluted account of the Peloponnesian War. After a successful career in the oil-field equipment business, Strassler has a new passion: He wants to make the classics more accessible to modern Western readers because, he said, "We are the heirs of the Greeks and the beneficiaries of their thought".
