This Companion volume provides a comprehensive overview of the major themes and topics pertinent to ancient Greek law. A substantial introduction establishes the recent historiography on this topic and its development over the last 30 years. Many of the 22 essays, written by an international team of experts, deal with procedural and substantive law in classical Athens, but significant attention is also paid to legal practice in the archaic and Hellenistic eras; areas that offer substantial evidence for legal practice, such as Crete and Egypt; the intersection of law with religion, philosophy, political theory, rhetoric, and drama, as well as the unity of Greek law and the role of writing in law. The volume is intended to introduce non-specialists to the field as well as to stimulate new thinking among specialists.
A month after the Nazis took over Austria on 12 March 1938, every business owned by Jews had a Nazi appointed to run it. For 82-year-old Sigmund Freud, the world's leading psychoanalyst, the appointed 'commissar' was a 35-year-old chemist, Anton Sauerwald. Goebbels and Himmler wanted all psychoanalysts, especially Freud, humiliated and killed and Sauerwald was in a position to seal Freud's fate. This fascinating book tells of the Nazi raid on Freud's house on 17 March 1938 when all books and papers were seized and handed to Sauerwald, who was briefed to investigate and find Freud guilty of something. The papers contained evidence of secret bank accounts and company debts - both 'crimes' that would prevent the Freuds from leaving Austria. Yet Sauerwald chose to hide this information from his superiors. Using extensive research and never-before-seen material, David Cohen reveals these last two years of Freud's life and the fate of Sauerwald, from the unusual rise of Nazi psychotherapists; the arrest of Freud's daughter, Anna, by the Gestapo; the dramatic saga behind the signing of Freud's exit visa and his eventual escape to London via Paris; to how Sauerwald met with the ailing Freud in London, and how he was later saved from the Nazi war trials in 1947 by the last-minute intervention of Anna. This book is a gripping true-life account of Freud's battle with the Nazis and of the man who saved him. David Cohen is the author of two biographies of psychologists - John B Watson and Carl Rogers, as well as the bestseller Diana: Death of a Goddess.
