Abstract Explore the power and the paradox of the 'Greek Thing'-a blossoming in art, philosophy, and science that went hand in hand with political discord, social injustice, and endless war. Richard Miles paints a fascinating picture of the internal and external pressures that fueled this unique political and social experiment, one that pioneered many of the political systems that we still live with today-oligarchy, tyranny, totalitarianism, and democracy.
