2500 years ago, democracy was born in classical Athens. This collection of essays by twenty-two leading scholars from the UK, Europe, and America, is a twin celebration--it marks this occasion and also the sixty-fifth birthday of David Lewis, Professor of Ancient History at the University of Oxford. The essays discuss the religious, financial, and political aspects of Athenian democracy, and all offer new interpretations of the subject, paying particular attention to epigraphy, Lewis's speciality.

`The subtitle of the book refers felicitously to a trio of papers at its core... All three are fresh, perceptive and realistic treatments of the subject.'
The Times Literary Supplement
`...although this is a volume aimed chiefly at specialist scholars in the first instance, its ramifications and implications extend far beyond the sheltered groves of academe.'
The Times Higher Education Supplement
`this is a worthy tribute to David Lewis, and a Stakhanovite effort by the joint editors Robin Osborne and Simon Hornblower, who have ensured very speedy publication.'

`a fitting tribute to this great scholar ... let me say that O. and H. have produced a meticulously edited book, and that everyone interested in Greek society, politics, religion, economics, indeed every aspect of ancient Greek society, will use this book at some time: it stands as a tribute
to a great scholar and a complex and great civilization.'
