We are very grateful to Yiannis Yiannakakis, head of Athens Walking Tours travel agency. In response to our "cry for help" in obtaining photography permits, he and his colleagues not only offered support in this tricky business and secured official permits for all requested locations, he also helped us with accommodations, transportation, and logistics, absorbing considerable portion of our expenses.

How Democracy Worked The biggest check in preventing on one person from holding absolute power was to give every citizen a chance to hold power— even if it was only for a day.

Greek Democracy

In ancient Athens all free citizens, from the richest to the poorest, could be called up for duty at any time. Elections to every office were kept simple— through a lottery drawing. No empty campaign speeches, no spending obscene sums of money, no nasty attack ads on your opponent. If your name was drawn, you were expected to serve your term, with pay of course.

Athenian democracy made certain that every citizen got a chance to get down and dirty in the arena of politics. The most important office in Athens was the Boule which had the responsibility of deciding which laws would go before the people for a final vote. The Boule was made up of 500 citizens who met daily. The Boule was democratic in that any member could propose a law to the Boule that would be debated.
