Book Description

30 Aug 1991
This book is concerned with the public aspects of the life of Athenian citizens in the period from c.450 to 322 BC. Its central purpose is a critical assessment of the character and extent of citizens' participation in the running of the democracy, by raising certain fundamental questions. By what means and through which institutions did Athenian citizens participate in the public life of Athens? Professor Sinclair's analysis is made from the point of view of the individual citizen - his privileges and opportunities, his responsibilities, the rewards and the dangers of exploiting the opportunities available to him.

Review

' … for years to come [Democracy and Participation] will probably replace Jones' Athenian Democracy of 1957 as the standard textbook used in universities in the English-speaking part of the world.' M. H. Hansen, Classical Review

' … a lucid, well-organized discussion which deserves to become the standard introduction to the subject for both senior secondary and undergraduate students. It should be in the libraries of all schools which teach Ancient History …' D. Phillips, Teaching History

'Sinclair … is to be congratulated for producing a consistently clear, well-argued, well-documented and balanced account which will retain its value for years.' N. R. E. Fisher, Polis

First Sentence
At some time about the 460s an Athenian boy was given the name Demokrates, which would seem to signify approval of the kratos (rule or power) of the demos (the people). Read the first page

This is a textbook for my upper level Athenian Democracy class. It's well written, and really enjoyable to read. I love it! Some of the points might be a little suspect, but that's how it always works with ancient history. Everyone has different views. I would highly recommend this book!
