Unlike its predecessors, this systematic survey of the law of Athens is based on explicit discussion of how the subject might be studied, incorporating topics like the democratic political system and social structure. The author draws primarily on the surviving law-court speeches of the Attic orators, but also uses Athenian comedy, public inscriptions, and various historical and philosophical texts. Technical and legal terms, ancient and modern, are explained in a comprehensive glossary.

Review:


"A work offering the best discussion on the practice and substance of Athenian law in the ages of Pericles and Demosthenes."--Choice


"An important new survey of Athenian law....[Todd] has succeeded in writing a work that is accessible and likely to be of interest to a general audience....A stimulating and useful work....Those working in Athenian law in the future will want to have Todd's book in front of them....This is a considerable achievement."--Bryn Mawr Classical Reviews

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1995. Paperback. Condition: New. Revised ed.. Language: English. Brand new Book. Unlike its predecessors, this systematic survey of the law of Athens is based on explicit discussion of how the subject might be studied; and it incorporates topics like the democratic political system and social structure, which are too often regarded as being outside the scope of law. At its heart lies an attempt to reshape our understanding of how the Athenian legal system operated; but it also deals extensively with subjects such as slavery, inheritance,maritime trade, and patterns of land-holding. The author draws primarily on the hundred or so surviving law-court speeches of the Attic orators, but also uses Athenian comedy, public inscriptions, and various historical and philosophical texts. Technical and legal terms, ancient and modern, are explainedin a comprehensive glossary. This book should be accessible to those interested in social history and the anthropology of law, as well as to historians of the ancient world. Seller Inventory # AAV9780198150237
