This week Jessica went to Clare College, Cambridge, to interview Professor Paul Cartledge about his new book Democracy: A Life (Oxford University Press).

What was ancient Greek democracy like? How was that model transformed in later eras? And what does the future hold for democracy? Watch our interview to find out!

You can also listen to another recent discussion of the book on ELECTION (the Cambridge Politics Podcast).

And you’ll find an early review of the book on the Los Angeles Review of Books website.
