Great in-depth look at a trial in Classical Greece. It really brings to light not only how a prosecution worked but also the various roles expected of women. I'd reccomend knowing a bit about the culture of the period before reading this. I read it for a high level undergraduate/graduate level course. For final I wrote a defense (we only have the prosecution) and included as many outlandish claims as I could (since this was a common practice in Greek courts, especially evident in this book). It was so much fun, and I aced it!
