This unique and stimulating book investigates the concept of human rights in the Roman world. The author argues that on the theoretical side, thinkers such as Cicero and Seneca developed ideas and, on the pragmatic side, practical applications were forwarded mainly through law. Bauman presents a comprehensive analysis of human rights in ancient Rome and offers enlightening comparisons between the Roman and twentieth century understanding of human rights.
