Dr. Greg Raymond writes for Blue Review

“Cleon and the other demagogues of ancient Greece are removed from us by over two millennia. Their stories are intriguing, but what insights can we gain from them that might promote a better understanding of the political challenges of our day? Of course, the past never exactly presages the future, but examining history in a careful, discriminating way can help us think more deeply about the present.”

Gregory A. Raymond, Distinguished Professor of Political Science Emeritus at Boise State University, writes in The Blue Review.
