Was crime in the Roman world defined by law or social attitudes? How did damage to the individual differ from offences against the community as a whole? The book explores competing legal and extra-legal discourses, discusses a number of 'crimes', and argues for the importance of court practice as a diver of legal change, despite the ingrained conservatism of legal writers.
