From Unity to Civil War: The Fifth-Century Greek Tragedy

From Unity to Civil War: The Fifth-Century Greek Tragedy (1.094 words)     Begins with historic victory of Greeks over Persians. These victories are celebrated as making Western history possible. The century that follows really shakes the historical imagination of classic Greece. Drama, politics, philosophy and architecture flourished. However, not long after, at the end of the 4th century, the Greeks begin moving toward Civil War (Peloponnesian War). Athens was in many ways responsible for the defeat of the Persians, but ultimately it falls victim to it’s own hubris and the belief of so much arête (excellence), that they lost the Peloponnesian War to the Spartans. Thucydides wrote one of the greatest historical books of all time about Athens. He not only told what happened, but also asked how it happened.

The Economics and Law of Ancient Greece

There has been sufficient evidence showing the first account of the earliest antitrust trial regarding the grain economics of Athens approximately around 388 B.C. according to Wayne R. Dunham as he has constructed a peer-reviewed article detailing his interpretations of how laws imposed by Athens on grain importers created serious negative consequences for the inhabitants. This article goes in depth on the detail of society that ancient Greece used to dictate the complex economy of grain as Athens relied heavily on the importation of grain, but decided to create unbalanced laws that ultimately did exactly opposite of its intentions. The author claims that an unintentional spike in the price of imported grain was caused by the collision of law and economic motives. Just as the America is dependent on its petroleum from other countries, the author argues that Athens had a similar dependence on the importation of grain, so when Athens chose to create laws...
