Review quote

"The greatest service this book performs is to show how the civil law affected the Roman in his day-to-day activities. Problems such as the relations between master and slave, wills, contracts, and other everyday matters receive full treatment and are illustrated by citations not only from the legal writers, but from actual cases. . . . Cook's versatile use of his material, both secondary and primary, is amazing. . . . A most valuable book which pulls together a vast amount of material not otherwise readily accessible in English into one manageable volume." The Historian"

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.
