Modern western civilization owes its roots to classical antiquity- so much of our cultural and political inclinations derive from Ancient Greece and Rome. And The Athenian Constitution, believed to have been written by Aristotle and one of his students, demonstrate exactly how much. Describing, in detail, the workings of the world's very first democracy, and establishing concepts such as precedence by trial, The Athenian Constitution is indispensible for anyone wishing to develop a healthy respect for our roots.
