Petitions, Litigation and Social Control in Roman Egypt

£24.99

Product description

This book examines the contribution that petitioning and litigation made to the maintenance of the social order in Roman Egypt between 30 BC and AD 284. Through the analysis of the many hundreds of documents surviving on papyrus, especially petitions, reports of court proceedings, and letters, Kelly focuses on how the legal system achieved its formal goals (that is, the resolution of disputes through judgements), and discusses in detail the contribution made by the litigation process to informal methods of social control.

Paperback with dust jacket. Used, as new.
