Overview

Probably written by a student of Aristotle, The Athenian Constitution is both a history and an analysis of Athens' political machinery between the seventh and fourth centuries BC, which stands as a model of democracy at a time when city-states lived under differing kinds of government. The writer recounts the major reforms of Solon, the rule of the tyrant Pisistratus and his sons, the emergence of the democracy in which power was shared by all free male citizens, and the leadership of Pericles and the demagogues who followed him. He goes on to examine the city's administration in his own time - the council, the officials and the judicial system. For its information on Athens' development and how the democracy worked, The Athenian Constitution is an invaluable source of knowledge about the Athenian city-state.

Meet the Author

Aristotle was born in Macedonia in 384 bc. For twenty years he studied at Athens in the academy of Plato, before becoming tutor of the young Alexander the Great. When Alexander became king of Macedonia in 336, Aristotle returned to Athens and founded his own school and research institute, the Lyceum. Aristotle fled to Calcis in 323 in the aftermath of Alexander's death, where he died a year later. P J Rhodes is Professor of Ancient History at Durham University, and is a Fellow of the British Academy. His major work is Commentary on the Aristotelian Athenation Politeia.

    Cypher - All.



    Ok so my da&lt;_&gt;mn tablet broke and I am currently unable to speak to you guys. I'm using a computer and will do my best to speak with anyone today if you want but Rayne you need to tell Max that I won't be on for a while. and if Sun ever gets back on then you know to tell her to go to our book. As for the rest of you, I hope you all have a great time while I'm gone. PS ~ Rayne, keep this place in order so that I have something to look forward to when I come back.

    I Also Recommend:

    the athenian constitution

    the athenian constitution was very interesting as part of a study of the history of democracy as it unfolded in ancient greece. some may be disappointed that a morjority amoung 5000 was the penultimate achievement rather than a vote of the general population, yet i believe for it's time this was quite an achievement. the ebb and flow of democracy across centuries in ancient greece is chronicled along with brief descriptions of athens great leaders and their defining issues. my greatest disappointment with the book was it's brevity and i found it quite a short read. for any one concerning themselves with the history of democracy this is a must read.

    Maximum poked her tongue before she left Rayne's cabin. She walked to the top of Half-Blood Hill, lay down, then rolled back to the bottom. When she sat up, she was covered in spring-colored grass.

    Maximum smiled. &quot;Yay!&quot; She hopped off the bed and crawled to the fridge. She took a strawberry out of the fridge and popped the hole thing in the mouth. She chewed and grimaced when she bit the leaf but swallowed anyway. &quot;Nummy.&quot; She shut the fridge and sat back on the bed.

    Maximum shook her head. &quot;You can hold him.&quot; She stood up and dusted off her jeans, sitting on Rayne's bed. &quot;Rayne? Can I have a strawberry? I love strawberries. Mmm.&quot; She smiled.
