Cicero: De Re Publica and De Legibus.

Marcus Tullius Cicero,  De Re Publica and De Legibus, Edited and Translated by Clinton Walker Keyes. The Loeb Classical Library. Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press, 1928.  


Cicero’s writings need little or no introduction. His erudition, eloquence and fluid writing style give the readers instant familiarity with the historical and political background of his times. His defense and prosecution speeches are like lectures given in court. Cicero the Professor teaches the jury and his opponents the meaning of justice and propriety, and demonstrates how to execute justice, by arguments of moral principles, precedent and custom, and proper interpretation of the law.
