This Companion illuminates Greek and Roman political thought in all its range, diversity, and depth. Thirty-four essays from leading scholars in history, classics, philosophy, and political science provide stimulating discussions of classical political thought, ranging from the Archaic Greek epics to the final days of the Roman Empire and beyond. An authoritative guide to the ancient Greek and Roman political questions that continue to shape and challenge the modern world, these essays strike a judicious, yet thought-provoking, balance between theoretical and historical perspectives.
