Summary note:
"The history of Athens and Sparta, distinct but parallel, common (including in the particular sesnse of struggles of one with the other), but also different, is a paradigm of great political, philosophical, and cultural importance. their struggle to achieve supremacy not only military and politically but also intellectually and morally has a momentious impact on poliitical thought and intellectual discourse up to our present, common, era. As we embark on a new millennium the two city-states continue to be relevant to perennial questions."--Anthony S. Papadimitriou, on container.
