The Rise and Fall of Classical Greece. Why did Greece reach such heights in the classical period? And how, after "the Greek miracle" had endured for centuries, did the Macedonians defeat the Greeks, bringing an end to their glory?

Josiah Ober, Mitsotakis Professor in the School of Humanities and Science at Stanford, works on historical institutionalism and political theory, focusing on the political thought and practice of the ancient Greek world and its contemporary relevance. He is the author of a number of books, including The Rise and Fall of Classical Greece, which documents the remarkable Greek efflorescence of ca. 800-300 BCE, the Macedonian conquest of the late fourth century, and the persistence of economic flourishing into the Hellenistic era.
