Dustjacket has minor shelfwear and rubbing. ; 143 pages; Provides a massive reinforcement for Livy's, Cicero's and Mommsen's view of the early Roman criminal courts-- namely that they were indeed the assembly of the people acting as a court of appeal against a magisterial sentence. Also describes minutely the working of the quaestiones, the standing jury courts of the age of Cicero and considers how satisfactory was the justice they provided. Lastly he describes the developments in criminal justice under the emperors of the Principate.
