3 Hansen, Mogens Herman; (translated by J. A. Crook) THE ATHENIAN DEMOCRACY IN THE AGE OF DEMOSTHENES Structure, Principles, and Ideology
Blackwell Publishers 1992 0631180176 / 9780631180173 Softcover Very Good 
Creasing to spine. Light creasing to wraps. Minor shelfwear. ; The Ancient World; 410 pages; When democratic rule was ended by the conquering Macedonians in 322, the Athenians had evolved principles and practice of democratic ideology that became the direct inspiration of those liberal ideas cherished by the Western world in the 19th and 20th centuries. Mogens Hansen examines Athenian democracy both as a political system and as an ideology. In describing the former he distinguished between the three major decision-making organs - the Assembly, the Legislators and the Peoples Courts, and the magistrates who were responsible both for preparing the agenda for the legislature and for carrying its decisions into effect. In discussing Athenian democratic ideology Dr Hansen also makes the important distinction between the ideals held by the democrats themselves and those imputed to them by the critics of democracy, principally (and ironically, given that they would barely have survived under any other system) the philosophers. The Athenians conceived liberty both as the ability to participate in the decision-making process, and as the right to live without oppression from the state or other citizens. Equality was conceived not as an equality of nature, but as an equality of opportunity. "The Athenian Democracy in the Age of Demosthenes" is based on more than 30 years sustained research.

4 Crook, J. A. & Paul McKechnie THINKING LIKE A LAWYER Essays on Legal History and General History for John Crook on His Eightieth Birthday
Brill Academic Publishers 2002 9004124748 / 9789004124745 Hardcover Fine with no dust jacket 
Mnemosyne, Bibliotheca Classica Batava : Supplementum; 1 x 9.7 x 6.3 Inches; 301 pages; This is a book about the law and life of Rome—in which contributors respond to John Crook's injunction to 'think like lawyers' by ranging as far as ancient Greece, ancient Persia and modern Denmark to expound their themes and draw comparisons. An opening section focuses on Civil Law, more or less as conventionally conceived, with chapters on the peculium, on municipal law at Irni in Roman Spain, on advisers of Roman provincial governors, and on violent crime. Roman perceptions of the physical and human worlds are the focus of a second section, and comparisons between Greek, Roman and modern ways of thinking about law and government come into the third section. In the final section, contributors argue the history of law and life from refractions of real and imagined Rome.
