The study of law is the study of the society which created it. Societies create laws in order to safeguard values which are important to them, and this is why the study of the laws of a society sheds light upon the ideals and values which generated them. In democratic Athens the law was both a product of democracy and a force for safeguarding democratic practices. In recent years books have been written on Athenian law, and on Athenian society, but never a monograph fully investigating the links between the two in all important aspects of public and private life. This study investigates the mutual relationship between law and society in classical Athens and includes a detailed study of Athenian legislation, constitution, finance, society, daily life, gender relations, religion, and culture, and their impact upon modern cultural values.
