Review quote

"Here teachers of Roman law and history, as well as beginners in those fields, will find a clear elucidation of legal questions that present themselves to modern students. . . . Crook, writing in a direct and lucid manner, skillfully blends the multiplicity of topical materia into the fabric of the text in a way that produces coherence and integrity." Classical Journal"

Back cover copy

It is about Roman law in its social context, an attempt to strengthen the bridge between two spheres of discourse about ancient Rome by using the institutions of the law to enlarge understanding of the society and bringing the evidence of the social and economic facts to bear on the rules of law.
