"A very impressive debut, rich enough in arguments, approaches, theories, and facts that one can disagree with a lot of it and still find much which is useful and convincing."--James Davidson, London Review of Books
From the Inside Flap
"Danielle Allen's book is a strikingly original contribution to classical Greek social and intellectual history and to the study of Greek legal practices. It also has crucial relevance for important debates within contemporary political and legal theory, including the practical implications of communitarianism and jury nullification."--Josiah Ober, Princeton University
"This is an original and refreshing study. . . . It allows us to reconsider contemporary issues, such as jury nullification and communitarianism, from a new perspective. Its range and depth of argument will make it a useful resource."--Craige Champion, Allegheny College
