Beschreibung:

...well written, and provocatively argued. Anyone interested in Thucydides can profit from this fine book." —Paul Rahe, author of Republics Ancient and Modern
More clearly than any previous work on the subject, Michael Palmer'sLove of Glory and the Common Good defines the relationship between Periclean democracy and the decline in Athenian political life that followed the death of Pericles. The author elaborates upon the views of Thucydides, who saw the subsequent tyrannical rule of Alcibiades and the accompanying disintegration of Athenian political life as a logical consequence of the defects in the speeches and deeds that Pericles used to inspire the Athenian people. With careful attention to details in the order and structure of Thucydides' narrative, Palmer shows this historian as a political thinker of the first rank who deserves the same careful study accorded to Plato and Aristotle.
