"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
