- Antigone - 1,273 words
Antigone In ancient Greece, men who died in war fulfilled the civic ideal to the utmost. The women, destined to live out a degrading life, died in bed. Certainly, not all men died in battle, but every epitaph shows in one way or another, the city would always remember the men who died in war. Additionally, not all Athenian women died in bed; nonetheless, it was left to her family to preserve the memory of her not the city. No matter how perfect a woman was she would never receive the same status or level of social expectations from the city that a man received. No accomplishments were allowed beyond living a life of motherhood and submissiveness to a man, namely her husband. In fact, in earl ...

- Athens Vs Sparta - 1,547 words

The city-states of Athens and Sparta are the best representatives of democracy and oligarchy, respectively.

... ... " Compare and contrast the ideologies and the political and economic practice of Lenin and Stalin. Every state is based upon and driven by some ideology. Imperial Russia was based upon autocratic absolutism for over 400 years. Following the Bolshevik seizure of power in 1917, a new era dawned upon Russia.

He was succeeded by Joseph Vissarionovich Stalin, who also ruled until his death in March 1953. Both men ...

... ose description of this stage, "The Empire is asserted, although to a limited degree, over sea, land, and the animal kingdom" (qtd. in Parry156).

- Title Of Paper : 2nd Class Citizens In Greek Society - 1,361 words
Title of Paper : 2nd Class Citizens in Greek Society Grade Received on Report : 94 Throughout human history the roles of women and men have been defined in part by physiology and in part by the attitudes conveyed by those who hold power and influence. In ancient history, societies were centered around women and the worshipping of goddesses. These roles changed quickly as hunting and warfare became increasingly more important and women's less powerful physique placed them in a weaker position. Just prior to the Hellenistic Age, three men wrote of their times, and of their perceptions, attitudes and ideas regarding men, women, and civilization. In Oedipus Rex by Sophocles we get a glimpse insi ...
