413 Missiou, Anna THE SUBVERSIVE ORATORY OF ANDOKIDES Politics, Ideology and Decision-Making in Democratic Athens
Cambridge University Press 1992 0521360099 / 9780521360098 Hardcover Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Very faint shelfwear to DJ. ; Xi, 216pp. By analyzing a selection of speeches of the Athenian orator Andokides and the decisions reached by his audience on each occasion, Dr. Missiou demonstrates that the orator had divergent perceptions, values and attitudes from those of his audience on a number of basic issues. By this means she challenges the criticism, frequently aimed at Athenian democracy, that the decisions of the Assembly during this period were irresponsible and irrational. In particular she ascribes the rejection of Andokides' proposals for peace with the Spartans in 391 BC to the incompatability between the subversive character of his speech, aimed at spreading pro-Spartan and anti-war feelings, and the socio-political needs and demands of his audience. ; Cambridge Classical Studies; 216 pages

Yale University Press 1991 0300047797 / 9780300047790 Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Faint stain to bottom of textblock. Bumping along lower edge of front board. Minor shelfwear overall to book and DJ. DJ has minor creasing and light edgewear. ; 360 pages; In this work, Mitchell brings to a conclusion his study of Cicero's political life and thought begun in "Cicero, the Ascending Years". This book spans the last 20 years of Cicero's life, from the end of his consulship in 63 BC to his death in 43 BC. Mitchell begins by discussing Cicero's political and social ideas and the extent to which they reflect the institutions of traditional republicanism. He then traces the reversal in Cicero's fortunes in the years after his consulship, describing his political isolation and his disillusionment with the conservative nobility. According to Mitchell, Cicero's inability to find a place or party seriously affected his political behaviour during this period. He was silent when Caesar, Pompey, and Crassus formed the First Triumvirate, defenseless when attacked and driven into exile, fearful and tentative in his political responses after his restoration, and reluctant when drawn into an alliance with the triumvirs. Eventually, after Caesar's assassination, Cicero seized a last hour of glory, assuming for a short time the role of preeminent "princeps". Mitchell shows that although Cicero made no lasting impact on the course of political events in his time, he ended his life defending the ideals to which he had remained steadfastly attached.

419 Moore, J. M. ARISTOTLE AND XENOPHON ON DEMOCRACY AND OLIGARCHY IN ANCIENT GREECE Translations with Introductions and Commentary.
Chatto & Windus 1975 0701122277 / 9780701122270 Softcover Good+ 
Some foxing to textblock. Rubbing to wraps. Creasing to spine. ; Contains: Aristotle's The Constitution of Athens; Xenophon's The Politeia of the Spartans; The Constitution of the Athenians ascribed to Xenophon the Orator; The Boeotian Constitution from the Oxyrhynchus Historian; 320 pages;
Three treatises survive from classical Greece under the loose title Politeiai (Constitutions) which are unique in character and indispensable to any student of the period. The longest and most important is Aristotle's Constitution of Athens which is both a history of Athenian constitutional development and a survey of the constitutional machinery of Aristotle's own day.
The second, by Xenophon, is an account of the Spartan social and educational system, and the third, also attributed to Xenophon, The Constitution of the Athenians, though probably by an earlier author, is the first example in history of political pamphleteering.
Dr. Moore has newly translated all three of these documents and an additional fragment The Boeotian Constitution written in the fourth century B. C. and the only surviving account of a genuinely oligarchic regime of the period.
To these much needed, scholarly translations Dr. Moore has added brilliant introductions and commentaries which evaluate the documents, illumine their significance, and provide the background information which the writers assumed their readers to possess.
In bringing together, translating, and annotating these constitutional documents from ancient Greece, Dr. Moore has produced an authoritative work of the highest scholarship which will place all students of constitutional history and of the Ancient World in his debt.

Very faint shelfwear else fine. ; This book is the result of a long and fruitful conversation among practitioners of two very different fields: ancient history and political theory. The topic of the conversation is classical Greek democracy and its contemporary relevance. The nineteen contributors remain diverse in their political commitments and in their analytic approaches, but all have engaged deeply with Greek texts, with normative and historical concerns, and with each others' arguments. The issues and tensions examined here are basic to both history and political theory: revolution versus stability, freedom and equality, law and popular sovereignty, cultural ideals and social practice. While the authors are sharply critical of many aspects of Athenian society, culture, and government, they are united by a conviction that classical Athenian democracy has once again become a centrally important subject for political debate. The contributors are Benjamin R. Barber, Alan Boegehold, Paul Cartledge, Susan Guettel Cole, W. Robert Connor, Carol Dougherty, J. Peter Euben, Mogens H. Hansen, Victor D. Hanson, Carnes Lord, Philip Brook Manville, Ian Morris, Martin Ostwald, Kurt Raaflaub, Jennifer Tolbert Roberts, Barry S. Strauss, Robert W. Wallace, Sheldon S. Wolin, and Ellen Meiksins Wood. ; 496 pages

Routledge 2010 0415874726 / 9780415874724 Hardcover Very Good+ with no dust jacket 
Bottom corners slightly bumped else Fine. ; Routledge Studies in Ancient History, Vol. 1; 118 pages; This story of Cicero and the Catilinarian Conspiracy is set within and offers a case study of the political, military, economic and social crises besetting the late Roman Republic in the era of the "Roman Revolution." The book chronicles the efforts of the defeated radical politician Lucius Sergius Catilina to bring together a group of disaffected Roman nobles and discontented Italian farmers in a conspiracy to overthrow the republican government at Rome and to take control of the Italian peninsula (while the proconsul Pompey the Great and the majority of Roman military units were campaigning in the Near East) , and the success of the conservative optimate consul Marcus Tullius Cicero in uncovering the conspiracy, driving Catiline out of Rome, and defeating his revolutionary followers in the capital and in Etruria. The narrative reveals the political corruption, economic problems, and military instability which were leading to the demise of the republican system and the rise of an imperial government in the first century B. C. The author’s comprehensive knowledge of the ancient sources and the modern scholarship relevant to the last century of the republic has allowed him to offer a detailed and definitive account of this important episode in Roman history. In the same seamless combination of vivid narrative and historical analysis through which he enlightened the Roman imperial age of Constantine, Dr. Odahl here illuminates the Roman republican era of Cicero. This book is a significant publication in Ciceronian studies and will become the standard account of the Catilinarian Conspiracy.

449 Osmers, Maria "WIR ABER SIND DAMALS UND JETZT IMMER DIE GLEICHEN" Vergangenheitsbezüge in Der Polisübergreifenden Kommunikation Der Klassischen Zeit
Franz Steiner Verlag 2013 351510299X / 9783515102995 Hardcover Fine with no dust jacket 
Like new. ; Die Griechen bezogen sich in klassischer Zeit gern und häufig auf ihre Vergangenheit. Wurde jedoch in der Außenpolitik Geschichte als Argument verwendet, so schlug sich diese Strategie selten in den getroffenen Entscheidungen nieder. Um diesem Widerspruch nachzugehen, prüft Maria Osmers mit Hilfe eines kommunikationshistorischen Ansatzes, in welcher Weise und mit welcher Intention sich die Griechen in der Außenpolitik auf Vergangenes bezogen und welche Bedeutung sie den Verweisen zuschrieben. Der gewählte methodische Ansatz ermöglicht es, außenpolitische Kommunikationen in vielen unterschiedlichen Quellengattungen zu lokalisieren. Dabei zeigt sich die Vergangenheit als geeignetes Instrument, um aktuelle Interessen oder Konflikte auszuhandeln. In den aufgerufenen Erzählungen erfahren sich die Beteiligten als Abstammungsgemeinschaft. Gleichzeitig schafft die 'Geschichte' ein Koordinatensystem, in dem weiterführende Verhandlungen stattfinden können. Die Vergangenheit fungiert damit nicht für sich allein als stichhaltiges Argument, sondern chiffriert die erwünschten, eingeforderten bzw. Existenten außenpolitischen Zustände der griechischen Welt. ; Historia - Einzelschriften 226; 407 pages
