Saving the City provides a detailed analysis of the attempts of ancient writers and thinkers, from Homer to Cicero, to construct and recommend political ideals of statesmanship and ruling, of the political community and of how it should be founded in justice. Malcolm Schofield debates to what extent the Greeks and Romans deal with the same issues as modern political thinkers.

Review:

'Detailed argument, firmly based in the sources.' Oxbow Book News No 41

'There is much here to discover about the world of ancient philosophy both in the previously published articles and in the book as a whole the book is beautifully produced.' - - POLIS

'The themes and texts treated in this book are fundamental to ancient political thought. The careful and innovative way that Schofield has approached this task should ensure that the results remain of interest for some time to come.' - Tom Stevenson, Prudentia
