Ancient Athens had high aspirations to be a model state, but its democracy broke down when it decided to engage in unwise wars. Could America, the comparison point in this book, having made the same kinds of choices, be undermining its democracy as well? After reading this book, you may well wonder.

Sympathetically intertwines the history of democracy in Athens, the ideas and ideals of democracy, and the drawing out of these ideas and ideals from ancient Greek thought and experience.
