Museum Tusculanum Press, 2000 - History - 651 pages
A substantial volume containing a series of twenty-five international papers which were presented to Mogens Herman Hansen on his 60th birthday in August 2000. The wide-ranging essays reflect Hansen's two main areas of research: the community and physical nature of the polis and its political ideology, practical politics and law. The majority of the papers, which include literary and philosophical perspectives, focus on Athens during the 5th and 4th centuries BC. This celebration of Classicism, although not aimed at the general reader, is ambitious and exuberant with its tone set by the introductory flourish' of two poems about Hansen. Three German and two French papers; the remaining essays are English.
