Author(s): Vivienne J. Gray (Editor); Xenophon
Xenophon of Athens was a pupil of Socrates and a philosopher in his own right. He wrote two of the texts included in this volume, the Hiero (On Tyranny) and the Constitution of the Spartans. The third, the Constitution of the Athenians, is found under Xenophon's name alongside the other two in the manuscripts. This volume presents an introduction discussing Xenophon's views on government in the context of his general political thought and a commentary on the Greek text of each work aimed primarily at advanced undergraduates and graduate students.
