An introduction to Demosthenes and his work is written by Michael Gagarin whereas the following translations of speeches 50-59, each preceded by a short introduction, are by Victor Bers. Most of the speeches concern relationships between Athenian citizens and state institutions and provide insights into public and private life in 4th-century Athens.
