Reviews

'A fascinating study ...' The Times Literary Supplement
'Robinson meticulously surveys the sources, literary, epigraphical, and archaeological, for cities on the Greek mainland such as Argos, in the north and west (for example, in Sicily), and in the east (for instance, Byzantium and Rhodes) and reveals how widespread demokratia really was ... Robinson has filled out the picture of ancient democracies, their origins, varied institutions, and crises, and the results should be of interest to all.' David Konstan, Common Knowledge
