3 Rhodes, P. J. THE GREEK CITY STATES A Source Book
Croom Helm 1986 0709942230 / 9780709942238 Softcover Good 
Scholar's name to half-title (Catherine Rubincam). Some pen underlining and notes to a few pages. ; 266 pages; Political activity and political thinking began in the cities and other states of ancient Greece, and terms such as tyranny, aristocracy, oligarchy, democracy and politics itself are Greek words for concepts first discussed in Greece. Rhodes presents in translation a selection of texts illustrating the formal mechanisms and informal workings of the Greek states in all their variety. From the states described by Homer out of which the classical Greeks believed their states had developed, through the archaic period which saw the rise and fall of tyrants and the gradual broadening of citizen bodies, to the classical period of the fifth and fourth centuries, Rhodes also looks beyond that to the Hellenistic and Roman periods in which the Greeks tried to preserve their way of life in a world of great powers.
