Overview

The fifth century BC witnessed not only the emergence of one of the first democracies, but also the Persian and the Peloponnesian Wars. John Thorley provides a concise analysis of the development and operation of Athenian democracy against this backdrop.

Taking into account both primary source material and the work of modern historians, Athenian Democracy examines:

  • the prelude to democracy
  • how the democractic system emerged
  • how this system worked in practice
  • the efficiency of this system of government
  • the success of Athenian democracy.

Including a useful chronology and blibliography, this second edition has been updated to take into account recent research.
