Reviews

"This book is first-rate: intelligent, judicious, original, a seamless performance, and on a fundamental topic... [A] great achievement."--Robert W. Wallace, The Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science "[An] impressive new book ... rich in detail and suggestive in interpretation... There is passion in [Ober's] account of democracy and sympathy in his portrayal of individual critics."--Mary Margaret McCabe, Times Literary Supplement "Ober commendably explores texts vital for understanding ancient democracy in a presentation well designed to encourage dialogue."--Thomas J. Figueira, American Historical Review "It would be difficult to overstate the scope and magnitude of Ober's erudition as displayed in this book. It is epic in its sweep."--V. Bradley Lewis, Review of Politics
