‘The Classical Greeks’ examines the structure of Greek politics and discusses the views of Socrates, Aristotle, Plato, Thucidides, and Solon. The concepts of citizenship, democracy, and constitution are described. Among the Greeks most of the conditions of freedom are found: a life lived among equals, subject only to law, and ruling and being ruled in turn. The laws and policies of a Greek city emerged from discussion among notionally equal citizens (free adult males) in the agora, the market-place that also generally served as the arena of politics. Citizens enjoyed equality before the law and an equal opportunity to speak in the assembly.
