Mark H. Munn - professor of ancient Greek history and archaeology, Penn State University Park

Book Title: From Popular Sovereignty to the Sovereignty of Law: Law, Society, and Politics in Fifth-Century Athens

Author: Martin Ostwald

Book Description:

Martin Ostwald's masterpiece has been an inspiration to me both for the penetrating questions it asks about society, law, and politics, and for its erudition. Ostwald is a historian who knows how to gather ancient testimony, to cross-examine it, and to draw meaningful conclusions from it. His book and his teaching (he was one of my instructors in graduate school) have been reliable guides and foundations for my own scholarship.
