Description - Cleisthenes the Athenian by Pierre Leveque

This classic study of the reforms in Athens in 507/506 b.c.e. that led to the birth of democracy is the only book-length treatment ever to have examined their philosophical, political, and aesthetic setting and significance. Focusing on the creation of a secular civic space and time, the book has influenced a generation of scholars in anthropology, sociology, urban planning, political science, philosophy, and classical studies.
