From the Paper:
"Upon assuming power, Kleisthenes instituted a number of reforms. He began by breaking up the old aristocratic power structure which was dominated by the four Ionian tribes of Attica. He replaced these with ten new tribes in an attempt to displace the factional differences that had previously divided Athens politically. The ten tribes would become the cornerstone of Athenian democracy, as they formed the basis for the selection and organization of all political and social structures. Kleisthenes also organized the people into local demes, which became the new basis for Athenian citizenship, and was structured around individual towns or neighborhoods within a city."
