Cascoly Books - Peloponnesian War - Donald Kagan


 The Peloponnesian War was in large part the struggle between  the Athenian Empire [ democratic, but including both slavery and subjugation of an extended collection of 'allies' for tribute  and resources] versus the Spartan league [ dominated by oligarchies with a feudal basis].  The final result of this long war was to weaken both antagonists and undermine their political systems.  Coming immediately after this war,  The Trial of Socrates by I.F. Stone places the writings of Plato in the context of  Plato's and Socrates' support for oligarchy rather than democracy.
