Product Description

Review

"Balot′s book is written with admirable clarity and offers a coherent and sophisticated perspective on ancient politics for an undergraduate.... It has a thought–provoking agenda and treats the abstract issues really well." ( The Classical Review, 2008)

"This comprehensive and well–informed book fills a niche.... [A] clearly argued and illuminating book. Balot achieves his stated aims with deceptive ease." (Journal of Hellenic Studies, February 2009)

Balot s book is written with admirable clarity and offers a coherent and sophisticated perspective on ancient politics for an undergraduate audience. (The Classical Review, Vol 58 No. 1, 2008)

Balot has provided students with a carefully cleared path through several centuries of thought about Greek politics. (Bryn Mawr Classical Review)

"Greek Political Thought is a great starting point for any student interested in the ethical and political thought of the ancient world." (Philosophy Reviews)

Review

"Balot′s historical and narrative approach has the huge merit of combining ancient context and modern relevance. Balot eavesdrops on Plato, Aristotle and their forerunners and successors to bring us the hot political news. His lively brand of ′virtue politics′ should instruct the advanced undergraduate and graduate student audience at which it is aimed, as well as refresh the parts of the established academy that drier scholarship cannot reach. Written in an easy and attractive style, Greek Political Thought promises to stimulate a vivacious dialogue between ancient and modern political concerns."
Paul Cartledge, University of Cambridge

"This is a remarkable book, a work of exceptional erudition and insight. It supplies a much needed survey of Greek political thought, but it is considerably more than an accessible and trustworthy guide to the territory. Balot presents himself not as an antiquarian chronicler but as an active interpreter, setting out the debates among the texts of the Greek tradition as new resources for thinking about the ethics and politics of our own time. Often controversial, but always scrupulous, Greek Political Thought will be of great value to serious students at every level."
Stephen Salkever, Bryn Mawr College
