Studies of Political Systems. Athenian Democracy in 5th Century BCE

Synopsis

This booklet is a re-working of the earlier QHTA Athenian Democracy publication. While much of the material from the earlier unit is included here, its focus has been changed to suit the theme of Political Systems. The new book has been arranged to follow the QSA Ancient History syllabus requirements to incorporate the Aspects of Inquiry. There is also a deal of new material and most sections have been considerably expanded. A more expansive chapter on sources has been added.
