Athens and Sparta are known as the two most promin
ent city-states of ancient Greece. Today, historians have a clear picture of what made the two societies so great, but if a historian were to come across a few primary sources of the time, would they still be able to draw some of the same conclusions? From reading Xenophon\'s "Constitution of the Spartans," Thucydides\' "Pericles Funeral Oration," and "The Melian Dialogue," one can deduce somewhat broad truths of both Athens and Sparta rather accurately. Xenophon, in his "Constitution of the Sp

A consequence of this change has been a substantial increase in the number of single parent families and the atte
