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.

The teenaged girl appeared about three feet off the ground. One second there was nothing there and next second she was. Of course after she appeared she subject to gravity again and so she dropped those three feet to the grass in a not so stylish fashion. "Well hmph," she muttered.

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.

Calla struggled to breathe, air hissing thinly through the open gash within her throat. Her muscles twitched as her neural pathways were overloaded with pain, her eyeslids fluttering and her fingers scrabbling weakly at the earth.
