Editorial Reviews


"...I think this book shows that the ancient world presents particular challenges, and that its politics remain in need of sustained theoretical attention. The first section of the book -- distressingly, only two paragraphs long -- is called "Meaning in context: how to write a history of Greek political thought". I think it probably is better taken as a question: "How should we write a history of Greek political thought?" How immensely we will profit should Cartledge write a book that tries to answer it. --Brendan Boyle, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, BMCR

Book Description

Ancient Greece was a place of tremendous political experiment and innovation, and it was here too that the first serious political thinkers emerged. Using carefully-selected case-studies, This book investigates the dynamic interaction between ancient Greek political thought and practice from early historic times to the Roman Empire.
