Michael Scott explores the dramatic and little-known story of how the ancient world was turned from a democracy into a monarchy in this superb example of popular history writing.

"Accessible and punchy... a wide readership cannot fail to be entertained as well as instructed about a world that is both familiar and alien, modern as well as ancient."
-Paul Cartledge, author of Thermopylae

"It's admirable of Michael Scott to shine a light on the forgotten 4th century, and he's engaging about the culture that bloomed as Athens faded."
-The Daily Mail
