Defining citizenship in archaic Greece, edited by Alain Duplouy and Roger Brock

Citizenship is a major feature of contemporary politics, but rather than being a modern phenomenon it is in fact a legacy of ancient Greece. Focusing on the archaic period and its cities, this volume challenges the narrow Aristotelian model of citizenship and provides instead a wide range of insights and methodological approaches to the topic
