Summary note
The first book-length study of the rhetoric of Cicero's 'On the Agrarian Law' I and II. Through a close and novel linguistic analysis, the book brings to light the ideology implicit in these speeches and presents a more complete picture of Cicero's understanding of Roman politics and his own role within it at the beginning of his consular career.
