Lec 21 - The Struggle for Hegemony in Fourth-Century Greece

"Lec 21 - The Struggle for Hegemony in Fourth-Century Greece" Introduction to Ancient Greek History (CLCV 205) In this lecture, Professor Kagan describes the aftermath of the Peloponnesian War and how the Spartans began to dominate other Greek poleis, instead of liberating them. The Spartan general Lysander at this point not only grows in influence and power, but also follows an aggressive plan to establish pro-Spartan, oligarchical governments. However, according to Professor Kagan, this fact angered many cities. Therefore, Thrasybulus, along with the help of other poleis, resisted Spartan rule. Eventually he opposed Sparta at Phyle and in time reestablished the democracy of Athens. 00:00 - Chapter 1. Spartan Power After the War 16:16 - Chapter 2.
