"A set of stimulating thought-pieces on five distinct but connected preoccupations concerning ancient civil and international law, legal culture, and later readings of the Roman legal tradition. . . . As an attempt to break free of the conventional parameters of discourse on law in antiquity, the book has much to recommend it."—American Historical Review
