"... [an] important book ... Students of history and political science will find the book highly beneficial."
"Robinson meticulously surveys the sources, literary, epigraphical, and archaeological, for cities on the Greek mainland such as Argos, in the north and west (for example, in Sicily), and in the east (for instance, Byzantium and Rhodes) and reveals how widespread dêmokratia really was ... Robinson has filled out the picture of ancient democracies, their origins, varied institutions, and crises, and the results should be of interest to all."
David Konstan, Common Knowledge
First full study of ancient Greek democracy in the Classical period outside Athens, which has three main goals: to identify where and when democratic governments established themselves; to explain why democracy spread to many parts of Greece; and to further our understanding of the nature of ancient democracy.
