About the Author:

Michael Scott is currently Moses and Mary Finley Fellow in Ancient History at Darwin College, Cambridge. From Democrats to Kings is his first book.

Review:

"Accessible and punchy... a wide readership cannot fail to be entertained as well as instructed about a world that is both familiar and alien, modern as well as ancient."
-Paul Cartledge, author of Thermopylae

"It's admirable of Michael Scott to shine a light on the forgotten 4th century, and he's engaging about the culture that bloomed as Athens faded."
-The Daily Mail

Book Description Overlook Press, United States, 2010. Hardback. Condition: New. Us ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. This popular history traces developments in fourth century Greece, from the fall of Athens in the Peloponnesian war to the triumph of Philip of Macedon and the campaigns of Alexander. This is not a period that is particularly well served by books for the general reader, possibly because there is no one overarching narrative, but Michael Scott does the job admirably, making the complex political landscape both clear and accessible. He also makes a convincing case for the importance of this neglected period, primarily because of the enormous political changes to which the title refers. Seller Inventory # POW9781590203910

Book Description Overlook, 2010. Condition: New. By the end of the 5th century BCE the democratic city-state of Athens, defeated in a long war with Sparta, had lost its empire and been shaken by oligarchic revolution. As the author tracks the brutal power struggles that ensued, he examines how the rulers of Greek cities and the Persian empire responded to this moment of uncertainty ¿ until the young Alexander the Great emerged from decades of turbulence to take control of a huge portion of the known world.
