Editorial Reviews


"Did the Athenian courts render purely ad hoc judgments, paying little attention to the letter of the laws? Did ancient Athens experience the tyranny of an elite minority that used justice to satisfy their own interests? Could we even say that Athens was in fact a stateless community where justice had nothing to do with what we designate by that name in contemporary practice? In this superb book Edward Harris provides clear and well-argued answers to these and many other questions. The Rule of Law in Action in Democratic Athens will find an audience not only among specialists of the ancient world but among all those who take interest in the role of law in any ancient or modern society."--Alain Bresson, University of Chicago

"The Rule of Law in Action in Democratic Athens is a real pleasure to read: bold and provocative, it confronts several views of Athenian law and justice that have achieved near-orthodox status in contemporary scholarship.... The book presents a much more complete and balanced picture of the Athenian court system and how the administration of justice actually worked in practice."--James Sickinger, University of Florida
