The Echo of Greece available in Paperback
Fourth-century Athens has a special claim on our attention, apart from the great men it produced, for it is the prelude to the end of Greece.
The kind of events that took place in the great free government of the ancient world may, by reason of unchanging human nature, be repeated in the modern world. The course that Athens followedcan be to us not only a record of distant and forgotten events, but a blueprint of what may happen again.
