Editorial Reviews


“Learned, elegantly argued and, I think, important ... Ellen Wood is inviting us, indeed I would say obliging us, to reconsider our picture of Athens.”—The Independent

“There is much of unquestionable value in this reading of Athenian democracy, not least the honesty with which the limitations of the available evidence are exposed and confronted ... [Wood] has indisputably set the agenda anew.”—Times Literary Supplement

“A compelling read ... always surprising and refreshing.”—Robin Osborne, Magdalen College, Oxford
