Editorial Reviews


'Detailed argument, firmly based in the sources.' Oxbow Book News No 41

'There is much here to discover about the world of ancient philosophy both in the previously published articles and in the book as a whole the book is beautifully produced.' - - POLIS

'The themes and texts treated in this book are fundamental to ancient political thought. The careful and innovative way that Schofield has approached this task should ensure that the results remain of interest for some time to come.' - Tom Stevenson, Prudentia
