The Hellenistic Reception of Classical Athenian Democracy and Political Thought

Edited by Mirko Canevaro and Benjamin Gray

  • Provides the first intensive study of the reception of Classical Athenian politics across the Hellenistic world, bridging the gap between scholarly study of these two periods
  • Offers a new perspective on Classical Athens itself, as well as the first stages in its long reception history
  • Brings together literary, philosophical, and epigraphic evidence and approaches, revealing new connections between texts and evidence often studied separately
  • Enriches our picture of Hellenistic civic life by studying the politics of the Hellenistic cities in close conjunction with the literature, culture, and philosophy of the period
