The Athenian Amnesty and Reconstructing the Law

Edwin Carawan

  • This study offers a new solution to a number of connected historical problems involving the restoration of democracy in ancient Athens
  • The study provides a case history of major trials, 403-398 BC, including that of Socrates
  • It draws perspectives from parallels in modern history, illustrating how the Athenian Amnesty is generally regarded as the model embraced in later conflict resolution
