Fathers and Sons in Athens: Ideology and Society in the Era of the Peloponnesian War

Book Overview
In ancient Athens father-son conflict was a topic of widespread interest that touched the core of both family and political life, particularly during times of social upheaval. The author explores the tensions experienced by a society that cherished both youthful independence and paternal authority. Thus he encourages us to reflect on the distinction between these concepts and on the difficulties of putting that distinction into practice today.
