1 A. H. M. Jones Athenian Democracy
Basil Blackwell 231543 Oxford 1964 Reprint Softcover Good Condition Good The 5th century BC witnessed not only the emergence of one of the first democracies but also the Persian and the Peloponnesian Wars.

Persia and The Greeks - The Defence of the West c.546-478 B.C., A. R. Burn
2 A. R. Burn Persia and The Greeks - The Defence of the West c.546-478 B.C.
Gerald Duckworth 231542 1970 Second Edition 0715617656 / 9780715617656 Softcover Very Good Condition In this volume the writer concludes a program of work undertaken many years ago, attempting to produce a readable account of the early age of Greece, from the age of the Trojan War (in Minoans, Philistines and Greeks, 1930) and the late prehistoric (in The World of Hesiod, 1936; both long out of print, and the former largely out of date), through The Lyric Age of Greece (1960), to the eve of the rise of the Athenian Empire. The rise of Greek civilisation was described in the last-named book; in the present work we begin with that of the Persians, one of the great imperial peoples of history, who deserve more sympathetic treatment than, from our inevitably and rightly phil-Hellenic point of view, they have sometimes received. The Persian Wars themselves, too, embrace much more than the great culminating episode of Xerxes' invasion, which Thucydides dismissed as 'settled by two battles at sea and two on land'. He would have been more just if he had compared that, not to the whole length of the Peloponnesian War, but to the one episode of the Sicilian expedition. The Persian wars too, together with the simultaneous struggle against Persia's allies, the Phoenicians, were a prolonged though intermittent series of campaigns, ranging in time from Cyrus' conquest of Ionia in 546 to Kimon's last campaign in Cyprus in 450, and in space extending throughout the whole length of the Mediterranean. To trace the course and connections of these campaigns, together with the rise, just in time to be the decisive factor, of the democracy of Athens and of its sea-power, is a task the more worth attempting for the fact that it has not been the subject of a full-length study since that of Grundy, published in 1899. With a postscript by D. M. Lewis. 612 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: History; History; ISBN: 0715617656. ISBN/EAN: 9780715617656. Inventory No: 231542.

Jefferson & Madison - The Great Collaboration, Adrienne Koch
7 Adrienne Koch Jefferson & Madison - The Great Collaboration
Galaxy / Oxford University Press 226502 New York 1964 Softcover Good Condition This book is an important and original interpretation of the half-century friendship between Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. It shows how the two philosopher statesmen jointly worked out the philosophy of democracy in the clash of contending interests. It is a contribution to the history of ideas and to a fuller understanding of two political realists who founded their faith on the people and envisaged the American republic as an experiment in liberty. Miss Koch goes behind formal statements and outward events to reveal Jefferson and Madison in their fight for democratic but strong government, free of religious ties, unafraid of political criticism, protective of civil liberties, and dedicated to learning. She recreates the personal drama and re-evaluates the political and philosophic significance of their views on federal authority, the French Revolution, the two-party system, the Alien and Sedition Acts, the public debt, the Supreme Court, the Louisiana Purchase, the location of the federal capitol, and the support of education in a free society. Foxing and discolouration to covers. 294 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: History; United States; History; Inventory No: 226502. Paperback

August 1914, Alexander Solzhenitsyn

Farrar, Straus and Giroux 233060 New York 1972 0374106843 / 9780374106843 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good Translated by Michael Glenny. In his monumental narrative of the outbreak of the First World War and the ill-fated Russian offensive into East Prussia, Solzhenitsyn has written what Nina Krushcheva, in The Nation, calls "a dramatically new interpretation of Russian history." The assassination of tsarist prime minister Pyotr Stolypin, a crucial event in the years leading up to the Revolution of 1917, is reconstructed from the alienating viewpoints of historical witnesses. The sole voice of reason among the advisers to Tsar Nikolai II, Stolypin died at the hands of the anarchist Mordko Bogrov, and with him perished Russia's last hope for reform. Translated by H.T. Willetts. August 1914 is the first volume of Solzhenitsyn's epic, The Red Wheel; the second is November 1916. Each of the subsequent volumes will concentrate on another critical moment or "knot," in the history of the Revolution. Translated by H.T. Willetts. Map endpapers. 622 pages.

The military successes of European imperialism are easy to explain; in many cases they were a matter of firearms against spears.
