Lawyer, philosopher, statesman and defender of Rome's Republic, the author was a master of eloquence, and his pure literary and oratorical style and strict sense of morality have been a powerful influence on European literature and thought for over two thousand years in matters of politics, philosophy, and faith.
Cicero's The Republic is an impassioned plea for responsible government written just before the civil war that ended the Roman Republic in a dialogue following Plato. Drawing on Greek political theory, the work embodies the mature reflections of a Roman ex-consul on the nature of political organization, on justice in society, and on the qualities needed in a statesman.

This volume presents five of Cicero's most famous defence speeches: of Roscius, accused of murder; of Murena, accused of bribery; of Archias, on a citizenship charge; of Caelius, accused of violence; and of Milo, accused of murdering Cicero's hated enemy Clodius. These new translations achieve new standards of accuracy and introductions and notes guide the reader through the speeches.

Cicero (106-43 BC) was the greatest orator of the ancient world and a leading politician of the closing era of the Roman republic. These three dialogues here are among the most accessible of Cicero's philosophical works.
The aim of this translation of the "Academica" is to render Cicero's treatise on Academic scepticism into readable English for a philosophical audience. To this end, the translator has attempted to preserve consistency in the principal technical terms where English allows it. An English-Latin glossary and an index are included.
A commentary of Cicero's great speech which provides insights into Roman life and culture, the nature and tools of Roman rhetoric, and the life and friendships of Cicero himself. Includes the text, extensive introduction, notes and vocabulary.
