This book collects the evidence for decrees through which the states of the ancient Greek world were governed and uses the evidence to study the decision-making procedures and the extent to which the citizens were actively involved. The book consists of a catalogue of the evidence for 1200+ city states, introduced by a discussion of the Athenian evidence, and with a conclusion in which the language of the decrees and the working of the political machinery in various cities is analyzed.
