The Cambridge Companion to Ancient Greek Law (Reviewed)


John Rothchild


Wayne State University Law School


American Journal of Comparative Law, 2008
Wayne State University Law School Research Paper No. 08-15

Abstract:     
The book under review, The Cambridge Companion to Ancient Greek Law, consists of twenty-two essays on various aspects of the law of ancient Greece - principally that of Athens in the fifth and fourth centuries BCE. These essays do a good job of conveying to the reader a sense of the law, in all of its strangeness to modern eyes, that developed in the society often viewed as the birthplace of democracy. The contributors to the volume include the leading scholars in the subject from Europe and the United States. The book will be of interest to comparativists, to classicists with an interest in ancient law, and to legal scholars who wish they had studied classics.
