"Periclean" Athens witnessed tumultuous political and military events, and achievements of the highest order in philosophy, drama, poetry, oratory, and architecture.

Pericles of Athens is the first book in more than two decades to reassess the life and legacy of one of the greatest generals, orators, and statesmen of the classical world. That set the stage for what is known as the Golden Age of Greece, several decades of almost unparalleled accomplishments in art, politics, and civil affairs.

The leader during this inspired era was a citizen of Athens named Pericles. He led many important political changes in the city. Kagan’s book provides us with a series of norms that dominated the world in which democracy emerged. One of them I have already identified, and I believe it to be crucial: that democracy in the time of Pericles was precisely not a norm.
