    One thought on “Athenian Democratic Origins: And Other Essays”

    1. There s some very interesting stuff here, eg the chapter arguing against the view of some ancient Greek city states as commercial societies ruled by mercantile aristocracies On the other hand I was completely bogged down and demoralized by the chapter on the precise dating of Aristotle s Athenaion Politeia, and whether he relied primarily on Androtion or not Definitely a book for specialists.
