I august 2000 udkom Polis & Politics, festskrift til Mogens Herman Hansen i anledning af hans 60-rs fdselsdag. Festskriftet har undertitlen Studies in Ancient Greek History, og rummer 35 artikler af 36 frende grske historikere. Artiklerne centrerer sig om de to emner, som Mogens Herman Hansen har beskftiget sig med i de sidste cirka 32 r: den grske bystat (polis ) og det athenske demokrati. Artiklerne strkker sig i indhold fra politisk ideologi (demokrati og oligarki), over politik i praksis til det urbanistiske aspekt af den grske bystat. Indholdsfortegnelse: PART ONE: THE POLIS 1.
