2 Ando, Clifford LAW, LANGUAGE, AND EMPIRE IN THE ROMAN TRADITION
University of Pennsylvania Press 2011 0812243544 / 9780812243543 Hardcover Fine in Fine dust jacket 
The Romans depicted the civil law as a body of rules crafted through communal deliberation for the purpose of self-government. Yet, as Clifford Ando demonstrates in Law, Language, and Empire in the Roman Tradition, the civil law was also an instrument of empire: many of its most characteristic features developed in response to the challenges posed when the legal system of Rome was deployed to embrace, incorporate, and govern people and cultures far afield. Ando studies the processes through which lawyers at Rome grappled with the legal pluralism resulting from imperial conquests. He focuses primarily on the tools—most prominently analogy and fiction—used to extend the system and enable it to regulate the lives of persons far from the minds of the original legislators, and he traces the central place that philosophy of language came to occupy in Roman legal thought. In the second part of the book Ando examines the relationship between civil, public, and international law. Despite the prominence accorded public and international law in legal theory, it was civil law that provided conceptual resources to those other fields in the Roman tradition. Ultimately it was the civil law's implication in systems of domination outside its own narrow sphere that opened the door to its own subversion. When political turmoil at Rome upended the institutions of political and legislative authority and effectively ended Roman democracy, the concepts and language that the civil law supplied to the project of Republican empire saw their meanings transformed. As a result, forms of domination once exercised by Romans over others were inscribed in the workings of law at Rome, henceforth to be exercised by the Romans over themselves. ; Empire and After; 184 pages

5 Bauman, Richard A. CRIME AND PUNISHMENT IN ANCIENT ROME
Routledge 1996 041511375X / 9780415113755 Hardcover Fine in Fine dust jacket 
240 pages; Crime and punishment have concerned humanity since the beginning of social life. Their manifestations in ancient Rome remains a fascinating topic, as the law of most European countries today is derived from ancient Roman law. Richard A. Bauman tells the history of punishment from the Roman Republic to the late Empire, shedding light on some decisive aspects of Roman history. He assesses punishment according to its innate humanity and cruelty, traces the changes in Roman attitudes, laws and practices during this era. Trials for treason, sedition and corruption illuminate political history; common law crimes like murder, and forgery that sharpen our perception of social history; discussions of freedom of speech increase our understanding of intellectual history; and religious persecutions fill out the picture of religious history. In its scope and focus, this is an unprecedented study, painting a vivid picture of the theory and practice of punishment in ancient Rome.

9 Bernard, Legras TRANSFERTS CULTURELS ET DROITS DANS LE MONDE GREC ET HELLÉNISTIQUE
Publications De La Sorbonne 2012 2859446893 / 9782859446895 Paperback Very Good+ with no dust jacket 
Light bumping to spine ends. Stamp to top of textblock "Service de Presse". ; Le colloque international Transferts culturels et droit dans les mondes grec et hellénistique étudie les phénomènes de réceptions, d’emprunts et d’adaptations dans la sphère juridique, depuis la naissance du droit grec, à l’époque archaïque durant l’âge des législateurs, jusqu’à l’établissement du pouvoir romain sur l’espace méditerranéen. La problématique envisagée a permis des échanges entre spécialistes venus d’horizons différents, historiens, juristes, anthropologues, hellénistes, romanistes, démotisants, sémitisants, orientalistes, dont les regards sur le monde grec et hellénistique sont complémentaires. Leurs deux préoccupations principales ont été, d’une part, de revenir sur les dynamiques juridiques internes au monde grec et, d’autre part, de mesurer les influences réciproques des droits des mondes grecs et des mondes « barbares ». Ce colloque complète et approfondit une première rencontre organisée en Sorbonne, durant l’année 2004 sur le thème des Transferts culturels et politique dans le monde hellénistique (Jean-Christophe Couvenhes et Bernard Legras éd. , Publications de la Sorbonne, 2006). L’histoire juridique de la Méditerranée antique sur un temps long permet en effet de mesurer comment l’élargissement du monde grec avec la conquête d’Alexandre, puis la formation de l’Empire mondial des Romains ont suscité l’élaboration d’une koinè juridique, qui a offert à des peuples de traditions différentes de vivre globalement en paix dans des sociétés pour l’essentiel multiculturelles. ; Histoire Ancienne Et Médiévale 110; 508 pages

19 Champlin, Edward FINAL JUDGMENTS Duty and Emotion in Roman Wills, 200 B.C.-A.D.
University of California Press 1991 0520071034 / 9780520071032 Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Light rubbing to DJ. Former owner's signature. ; Freed from the familial and social obligations incumbent on the living, the Roman testator could craft his will to be a literal "last judgment" on family, friends, and society. The Romans were fascinated by the contents of wills, believing the will to be a mirror of the testator's true character and opinions. The wills offer us a unique view of the individual Roman testator's world. Just as classicists, ancient historians, and legal historians will find a mine of information here, the general reader will be fascinated by the book's lively recounting of last testaments. Who were the testators and what were their motives? Why do family, kin, servants, friends, and community all figure in the will, and how are they treated? What sort of afterlife did the Romans anticipate? By examining wills, the book sets several issues in a new light, offering new interpretations of, or new insights into, subjects as diverse as captatio (inheritance- seeking) , the structure of the Roman family, the manumission of slaves, public philanthropy, the afterlife and the relation of subject to emperor. Champlin's principal argument is that a strongly felt "duty of testacy" informed and guided most Romans, a duty to reward or punish all who were important to them, a duty which led them to write their wills early in life and to revise them frequently. ; 228 pages
