Debt and Disorder in Athens

This is not the first dsolon-ca-639-ca-559-bc-everettebt crisis in Greek history.  In the 500s BCE, the Athenian politician and poet Solon had to confront a major crisis that threatened to tear his country apart, and tread a difficult line between the stubbornness of the rich and the anger of the poor.  Read about it in my article at the King’s Review, the graduate magazine of King’s College Cambridge.
