"Society, rather than jurisprudence, is the subject of this outstanding book in the field of legal history. Athenian law was less concerned with theoretical principles than with practical rules of conduct, and no people in the world had more interesting and original beliefs about conduct than did ancient Athenians. An invaluable reference work on all major aspects of classical Athenian law, this superb volume will be welcomed by anyone with an interest in ancient Greek civilization and in the relation between law and society."
