Cicero (Marcus Tullius, 106–43 BCE), Roman lawyer, orator, politician and philosopher, of whom we know more than of any other Roman, lived through the stirring era which saw the rise, dictatorship, and death of Julius Caesar in a tottering republic. In his political speeches especially and in his correspondence we see the excitement, tension and intrigue of politics and the part he played in the turmoil of the time. Of about 106 speeches, delivered before the Roman people or the Senate if they were political, before jurors if judicial, 58 survive (a few of them incompletely). In the fourteenth century Petrarch and other Italian humanists discovered manuscripts containing more than 900 letters of which more than 800 were written by Cicero and nearly 100 by others to him. These afford a revelation of the man all the more striking because most were not written for publication. Six rhetorical works survive and another in fragments. Philosophical works include seven extant major compositions and a number of others; and some lost. There is also poetry, some original, some as translations from the Greek. The Loeb Classical Library edition of Cicero is in twenty-nine volumes.

Anti-corruption in History

From Antiquity to the Modern Era

Anticorruption in History is a timely and urgent book: corruption is widely seen today as a major problem we face as a global society, undermining trust in government and financial institutions, economic efficiency, the principle of equality before the law and human wellbeing in general. Corruption, in short, is a major hurdle on the "path to Denmark" a feted blueprint for stable and successful statebuilding. The resonance of this view explains why efforts to promote anticorruption policies have proliferated in recent years. But while the subject of corruption and anticorruption has captured the attention of politicians, scholars, NGOs and the global media, scant attention has been paid to the link between corruption and the change of anticorruption policies over time and place, with the attendant diversity in how to define, identify and address corruption. Economists, political scientists and policy-makers in particular have been generally content with tracing the differences between low-corruption and high-corruption countries in the present and enshrining them in all manner of rankings and indices. The long-term trends—social, political, economic, cultural—potentially undergirding the position of various countries plays a very small role. Such a historical approach could help explain major moments of change in the past as well as reasons for the success and failure of specific anticorruption policies and their relation to a country's image (of itself or as construed from outside) as being more or less corrupt. It is precisely this scholarly lacuna that the present volume intends to begin to fill. The book addresses a wide range of historical contexts: Ancient Greece and Rome, Medieval Eurasia, Italy, France, Great Britain and Portugal as well as studies on anticorruption in the Early Modern and Modern era in Romania, the Ottoman Empire, the Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Sweden and the former German Democratic Republic.

In L. Calpurnium Pisonem, Oratio

"[The present edition] will long remain not only the standard commentary on this work, but an indispensable aid to every student of Cicero. Nisbet's choice of the neglected In Pisonem was a happy one. The speech--'a masterpiece of misrepresentation, ' as the editor aptly describes it--is a lively and characteristic example of Cicero's mature oratorical style; it is full of historical interest, and the condition of the text still offers scope to a judicious editor.... If Nisbet's treatment of textual matters deserves the highest praise, scarcely less admirable is the lucid conciseness of his explanatory notes, which, especially on historical topics, are often models of their kind."--Journal of Roman Studies.

Pro Rabirio Postumo is a speech delivered by Cicero in defence of the Roman financier, Gaius Rabirius Postumus, who became embroiled in the 'Egyptian Question' which preoccupied Roman politics throughout the 50s BC. This volume includes the first full-scale commentary in English, as well as a new translation and extensive introduction. It records and examines the particular circumstances surrounding Rabirius Postumus' trial, and it furnishes an intriguing insight into the political forces at work in Rome and Egypt during the late Republican period.

Discursos (vol. XVI)

Sobre el govern de les províncies consulars. En defensa de Luci Corneli Balb

El 5 d’agost del 57 aC, Marc Tul·li Ciceró desembarcava a Brundísium i posava fi al seu exili, després d’aconseguir el tan esperat perdó. Els dos discursos que presentem en aquest volum formen part del conjunt d’actuacions forenses que l’orador protagonitzà durant el període immediatament posterior a aquest fet. Són textos, per això, amb un marcat rerefons polític, determinats en gran mesura per les tenses i oscil·lants relacions de Ciceró amb els membres del triumvirat, principalment amb Cèsar i amb Pompeu. En el primer discurs, Sobre el govern de les províncies consulars, Ciceró defensarà la continuïtat dels comandaments provincials de Cèsar, de qui farà un encès elogi; en el segon, el discurs En defensa de Luci Corneli Balb, l’orador aconseguirà l’absolució d’aquest influent ciutadà originari de Gades, protegit tant de Cèsar com de Pompeu, a qui s’acusava d’haver usurpat la ciutadania romana.

Cicero was speaking like everybody, but better than anybody. Far from confining himself to the so-called 'periodic style', Cicero was a master of a thousand shades. This synopsis, followed by examples, shows in detail, why a study of Cicero's style might be rewarding even today.

For the first time, the arts and crafts of Thessaloniki, once the second largest city in the Byzantine Empire after Constantinople, are examined thoroughly through archaeological remains, historical sources and epigraphic records. More than 80 years of archaeological research and a life-time of personal research that covers 112 excavations, reveals at least 16 artisanal trades in detail. The book is organised chronologically with overviews of the political history and topography of Thessaloniki throughout its nineteen-centuries-long history. With an illustrated catalogue of each site and distribution maps, this work reveals relatively unknown aspects of life in Antiquity, the Early Christian period and Byzantium.

The Roman Citizenship

This classic text deals with the political development of the Roman citizenship from earliest times to the 4th century A.D. Sherwin-White examines such controversies of the Republican period as those on the limited franchise, the expansion of tribal districts, and the purpose of the Social War. He also looks at the evolution of Latin and Roman municipal status, dual communes, individual grants of citizenship, Italic rights, the status of freedmen, and the effect of the Constitutio Antoniniana.
