The Greek Tyrants

The Greek TyrantsThe Greek Tyrants by Antony Andrewes

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


An intelligent overview of the history of tyrannies in ancient Greece. Andrewes quibbles unadvisedly with Aristotle and Plato over the issue of "good tyrants" - which betrays his relatively narrow reading of their theoretical work on the issue - but does much to reconstruct the murky story of Greece's earliest tyrannies and the political conditions which made them possible.
