' … 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

GREAT! 2 May 2014

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!
