Oxford University Press 2004EISBN 0199298297
Cicero's courtroom speeches are the most significant examples we have of the art of the ancient Roman advocate. This book takes the speeches seriously as examples of advocacy designed to secure a verdict, aiming to set them in context of the Roman legal system, and to compare their methods with those of modern advocates.
