Description
The study of the institutions of ancient democracy has experienced a major resurgence in the last decade. With Athenian Democracy, noted political scientist Arlene W. Saxonhouse offers fresh and provocative explorations of the ancient theorists that will both clarify and stimulate discussion of the role Athenian democracy can play in our understanding of democratic institutions.

Although recent scholarship has tended to treat the ancient theorists as elitists (and therefore of little value for understanding democracy), Saxonhouse argues that to dismiss their writings would result in the loss of important insights into the nature, presuppositions, benefits, and tensions inherent in democratic practice.
