    Reviews & endorsements

    'It would be hard to think how this superb collection of essays about Greek and Roman political thought could be improved. … There could be no better introduction than this collection of well-written, scholarly and absorbing essays.' Literary Review

    'It is impossible to do justice here to the sweep of this volume … It belongs on the shelf of every student of politics.' The Anglo-Hellenic Review

    '… is nothing less than the very first general and comprehensive treatment of its subject in the English language … The broad and inclusive conception of [the book] is reflected not only in the range of authors discussed, but also in the heterogeneous authorship of the volume itself … It is not easy to do justice to a volume of this kind … There can be no doubt that this well-organized, accessible and carefully produced volume will remain one of the standard overviews of Greek and Roman political thought for years to come.' Arctos
