Condizione libro: Antiquarian
Paravia, Troino (.), 1969. XII,117p. Sewn. Small personal library mark, name as well as author?s dedication on free endpaper. 'The celebrated statement of Thucydides that the government of the Five Thousand was the best that Athens had had in his time (VIII.97.2) has evoked surprise, especially as it seems hardly reconcilable with his admiration, explicit and implicit, for Periclean democracy in the years between 445 and 430. The problem is exhaustively examined in this book, which despite its title is as much concerned with Periclean democracy as with the Five Thousand. (.) An excellent chapter examines the attitude of Thucydides towards democracy. He is shown to have admired Periclean democracy principally because it preserved for the Athenians harmony at home and power abroad. (.) Donini suggests that to Thucydides, because the Athenians in 411 displayed moderation and collective respoonsability when without the guidance of an outstanding leader, the Five Thousand could to that extent be deemed superior to Periclean democracy, even though the latter had the advantage in other ways and was more successful.'
