Summary
"In Citizens on Stage, James F. McGlew analyzes Athenian Old Comedy as a model for understanding political life in Athens during the late fifth and early fourth century B.C. During this period, new notions of political participation developed - both supportive of democracy, and hostile to it - that reshaped concepts of citizenship."--BOOK JACKET
