Review quote

..."[Colaiaco] does a commendable job throughout of providing both historical and cultural context for the lay reader attempting to read the "Apology and the "Crito." -Velvet Yates, University of California, Irvine ""Socrates Against Athens is a welcome addition to the literature on Socrates' trial and imprisonment. Written in a clear, engaging style, this study can be read profitably by anyone who is interested in the conflict between some of Athens' citizens and her most famous philosopher." -Thomas C. Brickhouse, John Franklin East Professor of the Humanities, Lynchburg College
