Summary
"Peter Liddel gives a new angle to the question of the nature of individual liberty in ancient Athens by examining the obligations of the citizen. His primary concern is to elucidate how the considerable obligations of the citizen to the city and to the society that surrounded him (known here as civic obligations) were reconciled with ideas about individual liberty, and how this reconciliation was negotiated, performed, and presented in the Athenian law-courts, assembly, and through the inscriptional mode of publication. Liddel assesses the extent to which the Rawlsian model of liberty might be used to elucidate the kind of liberty that existed in the ancient Greek city."--BOOK JACKET
