"Balot's book is written with admirable clarity and offers a coherent and sophisticated perspective on ancient politics for an undergraduate... It has a thought-provoking agenda and treats the abstract issues really well." (The Classical Review, 2008) "This comprehensive and well-informed book fills a niche... [A] clearly argued and illuminating book. Balot achieves his stated aims with deceptive ease." (Journal of Hellenic Studies, February 2009) "Balot's book is written with admirable clarity and offers a coherent and sophisticated perspective on ancient politics for an undergraduate audience." (The Classical Review, Vol 58 No. 1, 2008) "Balot has provided students with a carefully cleared path through several centuries of thought about Greek politics." (Bryn Mawr Classical Review) "Greek Political Thought is a great starting point for any student interested in the ethical and political thought of the ancient world." (Philosophy Reviews)
