Editorial Reviews

“This book brings together current research and thought, as well as new insights, into the history and development of ancient Greek government, and is a welcome, scholarly, addition to any print and/or reference collection.”  (Reference Reviews, 1 October 2014)

“In any case, this collection of contributions is a real asset in that it unequivocally shows that ancient Greek governmental studies is a dynamic field of study. Moreover, the book was carefully produced and the number of typos is limited.”  (Bryn Mawr Classical Review, 6 March 2014)
