Summary: Three treatises survive from classical Greece under the loose titlePoliteiai(Constitutions) which are unique in character and indispensable to any student of the period. The longest and most important is Aristotle'sConstitution of Athenswhich is both a history of Athenian constitutional development and a survey of the constitutional machinery of Aristotle's own day. The second, by Xenophon, is an account of the Spartan social and educational system, and the third, also attributed to
Xenophon,The Constitution of the Athenians,though probably by an earlier author, is the first example in history of political pamphleteering. Dr. Moore has newly translated all three of these documents and an additional fragmentThe Boeotian Constitutionwritten in the fourth century B.

To these much needed, scholarly translations Dr. Moore has added brilliant introductions and commentaries which evaluate the documents, illumine their significance, and provide the background information which the writers assumed their readers to possess. In bringing together, translating, and annotating these constitutional documents from ancient Greece, Dr. Moore has produced an authoritative work of the highest scholarship which will place all students of constitutional history and of the Ancient World in his debt.
