About the Book

Whilst students of Greek history enjoy Plutarch’s biographies of Athenian statesmen, they often feel overwhelmed by the detail and are puzzled by questions of reliability, sources and purpose. Plutarch and Athens responds to the needs of both teachers and students by giving a clear up-to-date presentation of Plutarch’s portraits in the Athenian context.
