Publisher's Summary

The Brutal Dawn of a New World from the Downfall of Athens to the Rise of Alexander the Great
Athens, 404 BC. The democratic city-state has been ravaged by a long and bloody war with neighbouring Sparta. Less than 100 years later, Athens and the rest of Greece, not to mention a large part of the known world, has come under the control of an absolute monarch, a master of self-publicity and a model for despots for millennia to come: ‘megas alexandros’, Alexander the Great.
Michael Scott explores the dramatic and little-known story of how the ancient world was turned on its head - from democratic Athens to King Alexander the Great - in this superb example of popular history writing.
From Democrats to Kings also gives us a fresh take on the similar challenges we face today in the 21st century, a world in which many democracies - old and new - fight for survival.
