An accessible introduction to the polis (plural: poleis), or ancient Greek city-state.

The shotgun method : the demography of the ancient Greek city-state culture by Mogens Herman Hansen( )

13 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Reflecting the innovative work of the Copenhagen Polis Centre's 2004 inventory of Archaic and Classical Greek city-states, Hansen's "shotgun method" for reconstructing and estimating the overall size and local distribution of the Greek population challenges the long-standing opinion that the majority of ancient Greeks lived a rural, subsistent life"--Provided by publisher
An inventory of archaic and classical poleis by Mogens Herman Hansen( )

19 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first ever documented study of the 1,035 identifiable Greek city states (poleis) of the Archaic and Classical periods (c.650-325 BC). Previous studies of the Greek polis have focused on Athens and Sparta, and the result has been a view of Greek society dominated by Sophokles', Plato's, and Demosthenes' view of what the polis was. This study includes descriptions of Athens and Sparta, but its main purpose is to explore the history and organization of the thousand other city states. The main part of the book is a regionally organized inventory of all identifiable poleis covering the Greek world from Spain to the Caucasus and from the Crimea to Libya. This inventory is the work of 47 specialists, and is divided into 46 chapters, each covering a region. Each chapter contains an account of the region, a list of second-order settlements, and an alphabetically ordered description of the poleis. This description covers such topics as polis status, territory, settlement pattern, urban centre, city walls and monumental architecture, population, military strength, constitution, alliance membership, colonization, coinage, and Panhellenic victors. The first part of the book is a description of the method and principles applied in the construction of the inventory and an analysis of some of the results to be obtained by a comparative study of the 1,035 poleis included in it. The ancient Greek concept of polis is distinguished from the modern term 'city state', which historians use to cover many other historic civilizations, from ancient Sumeria to the West African cultures absorbed by the nineteenth-century colonializing powers. The focus of this project is what the Greeks themselves considered a polis to be

The Athenian democracy in the age of Demosthenes : structure, principles, and ideology by Mogens Herman Hansen( Book )

40 editions published between 1991 and 2001 in English and held by 890 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Athenian democracy of the fifth and fourth centuries B.C. is the most famous and perhaps most nearly perfect example of direct democracy. Covering the period 403-322 B.C., Mogens Herman Hansen focuses on the crucial last thirty years, which coincided with the political career of Demosthenes. Hansen distinguishes between the city's seven political institutions: the Assembly, the nomothetai, the People's Court, the boards of magistrates, the Council of Five Hundred, the Areopagos, and ho boulomenos. He discusses how Athenians conceived liberty both as the ability to participate in the decision-making process and as the right to live without oppression from the state or other citizens. Equality was conceived of as an equality not of nature but of opportunity
