Description

Get the ebook ‘Defining Citizenship in Archaic Greece‘ in PDF form. Citizenship is a major feature of contemporary international and national politics; but rather than being a modern phenomenon it is in fact a legacy of ancient Greece. The concept of membership of a community and participation in its social and political life first appeared some 3 millennia ago; but only towards the end of the 4th century BC did Aristotle offer the first explicit statement about it. Though long accepted; this definition remains deeply rooted in the political and philosophical thought of the classical period; and probably fails to account accurately for either the preceding centuries or the dynamics of emergent cities: as such; historians are now challenging the application of the Aristotelian model to all Greek cities regardless of chronology; and are looking instead for alternative ways of conceiving citizenship and community.

Focusing on archaic Greece; this volume Defining Citizenship in Archaic Greece brings together an array of renowned international scholars with the aim of exploring new routes to archaic Greek citizenship and constructing a new image of archaic cities; which are no longer to be considered as primitive or incomplete classical poleis. The essays collected here have not been tailored to endorse any specific view; with each contributor bringing his or her own approach and methodology to bear across a range of specific fields of inquiry; from cults; the law; and military obligations; to athletics; commensality; and descent. The volume as a whole exemplifies the living diversity of approaches to archaic Greece and to the Greek city; combining both breadth and depth of insight with an opportunity to venture off the beaten track.
