  Epaminondas - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
418-362 BC), was a Theban general and statesman, born about 418 BC of a noble but impoverished family.
In 371 he represented Thebes at the congress in Sparta, and by his refusal to surrender the Boeotian cities under Theban control prevented the conclusion of a general peace.
At the instigation of the Peloponnesian states which armed against Sparta in consequence of this battle, Epaminondas in 370 led a large host into Laconia; though unable to capture Sparta he ravaged its territory and dealt a lasting blow at Sparta's predominance in Peloponnesus by liberating the Messenians and rebuilding their capital at Messene.

 Economic Structure and Organisation of Spartan Society Example Essays.com - Over 101,000 essays, term papers and book ...
The economic structure and organization of Spartan society to 371 BC was not sufficiently successful in maintaining Sparta’s power and internal stability throughout the period.
Although this system had originally brought Sparta to her hegemony in 404 BC with victory over Athens in the Peloponnesian War, flawed elements within her own economic system and the conservative nature of her leaders throughout the period had eventually led to the state’s decline.
This led to a decline in Sparta from an empire of considerable strength to a gradual diminution in power, heightened by her defeat by Thebes at the Battle of Leuctra in 371 BC.
