Editorial Reviews


Review of the hardback: 'Rethinking Revolutions is a wide-ranging and stimulating collection of papers that do much to cause us not only to look at frequently-touted aspects of antiquity with fresh eyes, but to re-examine how the narratives of the past have been constructed by later ages, including our own. ... Readers of this book will have their critical faculties sharpened and become privy to a number of new ways of thinking about ancient Greek culture and about what we and other have made of it. Talk of Greek revolution(s) may never be the same again.' POLIS: The Journal of the Society for Greek Political Thought

Review of the hardback: 'The volume provides some interesting insights on the history of classical scholarship and serves as a useful reminder of the extent to which contemporary issues and the history of interpretation shape our understanding of the past.' Classics Ireland

Book Description

Fifth- and fourth-century Greece has been held to be the period and place in which civilization as the West knows it developed, with revolutionary developments in politics, art, literature, philosophy, medicine, and music. This book asks whether these claims are well based and what is at stake in making them.
