An impressive feature of Schofield's book is his clear and meticulous exposition of the evidence, substantial passages of which are given in translation. Any future study of Zeno's Politeia will have to take into account Schofield's fascinating reconstruction of the work of Cassius the Sceptic. -- Classical Review
The plan and argument of this book are refreshingly direct ... A distinguished contribution to the field. It sets a high and innovative standard for historical analysis. -- Bryn Mawr Classical Review
The Stoic Idea of the City examines the political thought of the early Greek Stoics. It provides new interpretations of Zeno's Republic and of the later doctrine of the cosmic city, and an original analysis of the associated transition from republicanism to natural law theory. It offers students of classics and the history of political thought the clear and accessible introduction to the subject which has long been needed.
