This wide-ranging history of ancient Greek political thought shows what ancient political texts might mean to citizens of the twenty-first century. It examines an array of poetic, historical, and philosophical texts in an effort to locate Greek political thought in its cultural context; and, pays careful attention to the distinctively ancient connections between politics and ethics. The book is structured around key themes such as the origins of political thought, political self-definition, revolutions in political thought, democracy and imperialism.
