106 Cicero; David Stockton THIRTY-FIVE LETTERS OF CICERO Selected and Edited with Introductions and Notes
Oxford University Press 1969 0199120056 / 9780199120055 Softcover Good+ 
Scholar's bookplate to inner cover (G. P. Goold). Foxing to textblock. DJ spine a bit sunned and creased. Minor pencil notes. Else VG. ; These letters have been selected to show Cicero in his mature years from 65 to 44 B. C. They have not been chosen to illustrate details of social life and manners (though such details inevitably occur in them) : the main emphasis is political, and the linking commentary that precedes each letter is designed to set it against the political background. The commentary is intended to supply, not merely assist with the translation of the Latin and understanding of the syntax, but more particularly the indispensable background of social and historical information without which the study of Cicero’s letters would be largely wasted labor. The introduction too, while sketching the career of Cicero, also clarifies the political background of the period. In general, this edition will serve not merely as an introduction to Cicero’s letters, but as giving some substance and immediacy to the study of the history of the late Republic. The text is that of the Oxford edition, but care has been taken to produce a ‘clean’ text and occasionally different readings have been admitted from those printed in the Oxford text (though these are generally noted and justified in the commentary). There are two appendices (on the Roman calendar and on Roman money) , an index of proper names and of subject-matter, and a select vocabulary. David Stockton (1925-2012) attended the Emanuel School and in 1943 was conscripted into the Royal Navy and worked on Japanese codes at Bletchley Park. A colleague at Brasenose observed that this experience may have honed his formidable skills at solving crosswords, a devotion to which was shared by Inspector Morse author Colin Dexter. After the war Stockton won an open scholarship to read Classics at Magdalen College and went onto become a Fellow and Tutor at Brasenose College. His wide-ranging body of work includes what is widely regarded as the leading study on Cicero published in the 20th century.; 241 pages

117 Cohen, Edward THE ATHENIAN NATION
Princeton University Press 2003 069109490X / 9780691094908 Softcover Very Good+ 
Faint crease to rear lower corner of wraps. Else book is fine. ; Challenging the modern assumption that ancient Athens is best understood as a polis, Edward Cohen boldly recasts our understanding of Athenian political and social life. Cohen demonstrates that ancient sources referred to Athens not only as a polis, but also as a "nation" (ethnos) , and that Athens did encompass the characteristics now used to identify a "nation." He argues that in Athens economic, religious, sexual, and social dimensions were no less significant than political and juridical considerations, and accordingly rejects prevailing scholarship's equation of Athens with its male citizen body. In fact, Cohen shows that the categories of "citizen" and "noncitizen" were much more fluid than is often assumed, and that some noncitizens exercised considerable power. He explores such subjects as the economic importance of businesswomen and wealthy slaves; the authority exercised by enslaved public functionaries; the practical egalitarianism of erotic relations and the broad and meaningful protections against sexual abuse of both free persons and slaves, and especially of children; the wide involvement of all sectors of the population in significant religious and local activities. All this emerges from the use of fresh legal, economic, and archaeological evidence and analysis that reveal the social complexity of Athens, and the demographic and geographic factors giving rise to personal anonymity and limiting personal contacts--leading to the creation of an "imagined community" with a mutually conceptualized identity, a unified economy, and national "myths" set in historical fabrication. ; 272 pages

119 Connolly, Joy THE LIFE OF ROMAN REPUBLICANISM
Princeton University Press 2014 069116259X / 9780691162591 Hardcover Fine in Fine dust jacket 
In recent years, Roman political thought has attracted increased attention as intellectual historians and political theorists have explored the influence of the Roman republic on major thinkers from the Renaissance to the Enlightenment. Held up as a "third way" between liberalism and communitarianism, neo-Roman republicanism promises useful, persuasive accounts of civic virtue, justice, civility, and the ties that bind citizens. But republican revivalists, embedded in modern liberal, democratic, and constitutional concerns, almost never engage closely with Roman texts. The Life of Roman Republicanism takes up that challenge. With an original combination of close reading and political theory, Joy Connolly argues that Cicero, Sallust, and Horace inspire fresh thinking about central concerns of contemporary political thought and action. These include the role of conflict in the political community, especially as it emerges from class differences; the necessity of recognition for an equal and just society; the corporeal and passionate aspects of civic experience; citizens' interdependence on one another for senses of selfhood; and the uses and dangers of self-sovereignty and fantasy. Putting classicists and political theorists in dialogue, the book also addresses a range of modern thinkers, including Kant, Hannah Arendt, Stanley Cavell, and Philip Pettit. Together, Connolly's readings construct a new civic ethos of advocacy, self-criticism, embodied awareness, imagination, and irony. ; 256 pages

120 Corbeill, Anthony CONTROLLING LAUGHTER Political Humor in the Late Roman Republic
Princeton University Press 1996 0691027390 / 9780691027395 Hardcover Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Book is fine. DJ has very light shelfwear. ; Although numerous scholars have studied Late Republican humor, this is the first book to examine its social and political context. Anthony Corbeill maintains that political abuse exercised real powers of persuasion over Roman audiences and he demonstrates how public humor both creates and enforces a society's norms. Previous scholarship has offered two explanations for why abusive language proliferated in Roman oratory. The first asserts that public rhetoric, filled with extravagant lies, was unconstrained by strictures of propriety. The second contends that invective represents an artifice borrowed from the Greeks. After a fresh reading of all extant literary works from the period, Corbeill concludes that the topics exploited in political invective arise from biases already present in Roman society. The author assesses evidence outside political discourse--from prayer ritual to philosophical speculation to physiognomic texts--in order to locate independently the biases in Roman society that enabled an orator's jokes to persuade. Within each instance of abusive humor--a name pun, for example, or the mockery of a physical deformity--resided values and preconceptions that were essential to the way a Roman citizen of the Late Republic defined himself in relation to his community. ; 280 pages

Bump to top corner of books. Minor rubbing to wraps. Light lifting of corners. ; Revised Paperback Edition. ; Oxford Classical Monographs; 1.11 x 8.74 x 5.7 Inches; 424 pages; The era of Diocletan and Constantine is a significant period for the Roman empire, with far-reaching administrative changes that established the structure of government for three hundred years - a time when the Christian church passed from persecution to imperial favour. It is also a complex period of co-operation and rivalry between a number of co-emperors, the result of Diocletian's experiment of government by four rulers (the tetrarchs). This book examines imperial government at this crucial but often neglected period of transition, through a study of the the pronouncement that the emperors and their officials produced, drawing together material from a wide variety of sources: the law codes, Christian authors, inscritpions, and papyri. The study covers the format, composition, and promulgation of documents, and includes chronological catalogues of imperial letters and edicts, as well as extended discussions of the Gregorian and Hermogenian Codes, and the ambitious Prices Edict. Much of this has had little detailed coverage in English before. There is also a chapter that elucidates the relative powers of the members of the imperial college. Finally, Dr Corcoran assesses how effectively the machinery of government really matched the ambitions of the emperors.

Spine a little discolored and creased. ; The title of this book needs a word of explanation, if not of apology; for to any one who is accustomed to think of Thucydides as typically prosaic, and nothing if not purely historical, the epithet Mythistoricus may seem to carry a note of challenge, or even of paradox. But the sense in which the expression has here been used is quite consistent with the historian's much-talked-of `trustworthiness', and, indeed, with the literal truth of every statement of fact in the whole of his work. It is possible, however, even for a writer of history, to be something much better than trustworthy. Xenophon, I suppose, is honest; but his honesty makes it none the easier to read him. To read Thucydides is, although certainly not easy, at any rate pleasant, because--trustworthiness and all--he is a great artist. It is the object of this essay to bring out an essentially artistic aspect of his work, which has escaped notice, partly because the history is so long that it is hard to take it in as a whole, and partly because the execution of the effect is imperfect, having been hindered by the good intentions with which Thucydides set out. ; Pennsylvania Paperback 1021; 252 pages; Reprint of 1907 Original.

Very minor shelfwear. Else fine. ; Das Buch des emeritierten Salzburger Grazisten enthalt eine Auswahl seiner in den Jahren seit 1971 entstandenen Aufsatze sowie einen umfangreichen, noch nicht publizierten Beitrag zum sokratisch-platonischen ethischen Intellektualismus. Ausgehend vom Zusammenhang zwischen der arete, dem Wissen vom Guten und dem richtigen Handeln, gelangt Platon zur Konzeption der anamnesis und zur Ideenlehre - ein bisher in der Forschung wenig beachteter Komplex. Weitere Themen der ueber zwanzig Aufsatze sind u. A. Die Ontologie des Parmenides, der homo-mensura-Satz des Protagoras und Platons Auseinandersetzung mit ihm, Platons literarische Techniken, die Sozialphilosophie und Sozialpolitik Marc Aurels. Unter dem Aspekt "Lohnt es sich, fuer die Menschen zu leiden?" wird der Prometheusmythos interpretiert. Ausserdem behandelt Dalfen den Wissenschaftsbegriff der griechischen Medizin, die Prasens der Griechen im Denken der modernen Naturwissenschaft, die Wurzeln des europaischen Kulturbegriffs, Politik und Utopie in einer Komodie des Aristophanes, und aus dem Bereich der Religion das Gebet des Kleanthes an Zeus und das Schicksal sowie Deutungen menschlicher Existenz in der fruehen griechischen Dichtung. ; 556 pages

Lower corners bumped. ; Integration in the empire under the political control of the city of Rome, her princeps, and the different authorities in the provinces and cities includes processes of inclusion and exclusion. These multifaceted processes take place at various levels in society and at different places, over a long period of time. In this volume, these processes are analysed and reflected on from different perspectives. Juridical, political, social and religious points of view are articulated, elaborating on epigraphic, literary, juridical and numismatic evidence. Notions of personal and collective identities have been linked to relevant Roman realia, so that various contents of Romanitas can be defined through contextualization. ; Impact of Empire Volume 17; 302 pages

149 Desmond, William PHILOSOPHER-KINGS OF ANTIQUITY
Continuum Publishing Group 2011 0826434754 / 9780826434753 Hardcover Fine with no dust jacket 
One of the most celebrated of Plato's ideas was that if human society was ever to function successfully then philosophers would need to become kings, or kings philosophers. In a perfect state, therefore, philosophic wisdom should be wedded to political power. In antiquity, who were or aspired to be philosopher-kings? What was their understanding of wisdom and the limits of knowledge? What influence have they had on periods beyond antiquity? This volume focuses on Plato and his contemporaries; Alexander the Great and his Hellenistic successors; Marcus Aurelius and the ‘good emperors'; Moses, Solomon and early Hebrew leaders; and Julian the Apostate, the last of the pagans. In conclusion it looks at the re-emergence of the Platonic ideal in important moments of European history, such as the Enlightenment. The theme of the philosopher-king is significant for Greco-Roman antiquity as a whole, and this work is unique in detailing the development of an idea through major periods of Greek and Roman history, and beyond; 256 pages
