- In Greek Tyranny Sian Lewis considers the different forms which sole rulership took – the violent usurper, the appointed magistrate, the general and the Hellenistic king – and the responses which tyranny evoked, both from the citizens of the polis and from intellectuals such as Plato and Aristotle.
- She examines the phenomenon of aristocratic rule outside the law in archaic and classical Greece, and offers a new interpretation of the nature of tyranny, suggesting it was a positive choice for many Greek states.
- Chronologically organised, Greek Tyranny covers the whole of the period between 750 and 250 BC and includes a wide range of historical figures.
