Editorial Reviews

Review

"Democracy and Participation in Athens is a must read, especially today, where those who govern us do not enjoy the trust and support of the governed." Hellenic-Canadian Chronicles

"Sinclair...is to be congratulated for producing a consistently clear, well-argued, well-documented and balanced account which will retain its value for years." Polis

"...a lucid, well-organized discussion which deserves to become the standard introduction to the subject for both senior secondary and undergraduate students. It should be in the libraries of all schools which teach Ancient History..." Teaching History

"Recent years have witnessed a renewed interest in the public life of Ancient Athens, particulary under the democracy. The present work makes still another important contribution through its successful handling of the theme of participation of citizens in the life of Athens in the period from the middle of the fifth century to 322 BC. Building upon the detailed work of many historians, accurately and clearly written, presented in a form accessible to a wide readership, and most impressively, moving freely over a wide range of evidence, Sinclair's book will greatly advance our understanding of this elusive but important topic." Ancient Philosophy

"A thorough, current, and clear explanation of the relationship between popular participation and Athenian democracy's historical development, organs, principles, and procedures, this work will be used extensively by both students and scholars." Donald G. Kyle, Classical World

Book Description

The public aspects of the lives of Athenian citizens (c. 450 to 322 BC.) are assessed to establish the nature and extent of citizen participation in the governing democracy of that period.

This is a textbook for my upper level Athenian Democracy class. It's well written, and really enjoyable to read. I love it! Some of the points might be a little suspect, but that's how it always works with ancient history. Everyone has different views. I would highly recommend this book!
