This book presents, analyses and explains the ideals and actions of ancient Greeks regarding their external affairs or Exopolitics, thereby integrating classical Political Philosophy and modern International Relations Theory.

It is the thesis of this monograph that despite the very little thought apparently given by Greek philosophers to exopolitics, students of international relations can still benefit by the content of distilled ideas of great thinkers in the context of their changing historical environment. The political tragedy of Greece was the entropic conflict among the city-states, the national culture and the barbarian world. The question for us is if we can do better!

Even a modicum of the timeless ethical and empirical speculations of ancient philosophers can serve contemporary students of World Affairs in their research for global standards and general principles.

The methodology followed here combines thematic, topical and chronological discussion and interaction.

The organization of the 280 pages book is divided into three sections: Genealogical, Ideographic, and Philosophical, each of which is divided into two parts of three Chapters each, for a total of 18 Chapters, as follows.
