Size: 8½ x 5¾ x 1 inch; 1¼ pounds. Ancient Roman families were very diverse, of course, but the basis of Roman civil law was the familia, a strictly defined group consisting of a head, called a paterfamilias, and his descendants in the male line. Recent work on the Roman family mainly ignores the familia, examining instead such matters as emotional relationships within families, the practical effects of control by a paterfamilias, and demographic factors producing families which did not fit the familia pattern. Gardner investigates the complex relationship that existed between family and familia, illustrating in particular how families exploited the legal rules for their own ends--and disrupted the familia--by use of emancipation (release from patria potestas) and adoption. She also traces legal responses to the effects of various demographic factors, which gave increased importance to maternal connections, and to social effects, such as the troubles ex-slaves faced in conforming to the familia pattern. The familia as a legal institution remained virtually unchanged, nevertheless Roman family law underwent substantial changes to meet the needs and desires of Roman society. CONDITION: NEW.

PUBLISHER REVIEWS: REVIEW: Roman families were infinitely diverse, but the basis of Roman civil law was the familia, a strictly-defined group consisting of a head, paterfamilias, and his descendants in the male line. Recent work on the Roman family mainly ignores the familia, in favor of examining such matters as emotional relationships within families, the practical effects of control by a paterfamilias, and demographic factors producing families which did not fit the familia-pattern. This book investigates the interrelationship between family and familia, especially how families exploited the legal rules for their own ends, and disrupted the familia, by use of emancipation (release from patria potestas) and adoption. It also traces legal responses to the effects of demographic factors, which gave increased importance to maternal connections, and to social, such as the difficulties for ex-slaves in conforming to the familia-pattern. The familia as a legal institution remained virtually unchanged; nevertheless Roman family law underwent substantial changes, to meet the needs and desires of Roman society. REVIEW: Jane F. Gardner describes how Roman law was based on the familia, a legal unit consisting of a male head and his legitimate descendants in the male line. Real Roman families, however, often did not fit this pattern. How did they exploit the rules to suit their own purposes, and how, under the influences of various social and demographic factors, were the rules themselves changed? REVIEW: TABLE OF CONTENTS.

PROFESSIONAL REVIEWS: REVIEW: For the social historian interested in gaining broad insights into the workings of Roman family law, Gardner's book offers many valuable conclusions....The author's grasp of the complexities of her subject matter is impressive....historians of the Roman family will definitely wish to keep the volume in their home libraries as a reference tool. [Bryn Mawr, Classical Review]. REVIEW: Gardner rescues Roman law from a narrow focus on legal rules and artificial compartmentalizing...Her meticulous study shows how important an understanding of technical detail continues to be but it also shows how rewarding is the contextualization of such detail in Roman social attitudes and behavior.Each part is presented in a number of small bites, which makes the material more digestible and enhances the book's usefulness for reference. Technical terms are clearly defined, especially familia and 'family'...the legal material studied is often difficult and complicated, and we owe Gardner thanks for working through it, teasing it out, and explicating it so well (even, at times, with humor)...an authoritative work...useful to both Roman law scholars and social historians...[Beryl Rawson, "Journal of Roman Studies"]. REVIEW: Jane F Gardner's new book makes a useful addition to the growing scholarship on the Roman family...Gardner's full treatment of emancipation, adoption, and the mother-child bond fills a significant gap in the scholarship on Roman family life...based on legal sources, of which Gardner has a detailed and reliable grasp'. [Richard Saller, American Historical Review]. REVIEW: For the social historian interested in gaining broad insights into the workings of Roman family law, Gardner's book offers many valuable conclusions...The author's grasp of the complexities of her subject matter is impressive...Gardner's analysis of cases cited in the Digest offers insight into social realities by giving brief glimpses of real families caught up in complicated legal and personal scenarios...historians of the Roman family will definitely wish to keep the volume in their home libraries as a reference tool. [Marily B Skinner, University of Arizona, Bryn Mawr Classical Review]. REVIEW: READER REVIEWS: REVIEW: Remarkable book on Roman life and the family. I always ship books Media Mail in a padded mailer. This book is shipped FOR FREE via USPS INSURED media mail (“book rate”). All domestic shipments and most international shipments will include free USPS Delivery Confirmation (you might be able to update the status of your shipment on-line at the USPS Web Site) and free insurance coverage. A small percentage of international shipments may require an additional fee for tracking and/or delivery confirmation. If you are concerned about a little wear and tear to the book in transit, I would suggest a boxed shipment - it is an extra $1.00. Whether via padded mailer or box, we will give discounts for multiple purchases. International orders are welcome, but shipping costs are substantially higher. Most international orders cost an additional $12.99 to $33.99 for an insuredshipment in a heavily padded mailer, and typically includes some form of rudimentary tracking and/or delivery confirmation (though for some countries, this is only available at additional cost). There is also a discount program which can cut postage costs by 50% to 75% if you’re buying about half-a-dozen books or more (5 kilos+). Rates and available services vary a bit from country to country. You can email or message me for a shipping cost quote, but I assure you they are as reasonable as USPS rates allow, and if it turns out the rate is too high for your pocketbook, we will cancel the sale at your request. ADDITIONAL PURCHASES do receive a VERY LARGE discount, typically about $5 per book (for each additional book after the first) so as to reward you for the economies of combined shipping/insurance costs. Your purchase will ordinarily be shipped within 48 hours of payment. We package as well as anyone in the business, with lots of protective padding and containers. All of our shipments are sent via insured mail so as to comply with PayPal requirements. We do NOT recommend uninsured shipments, and expressly disclaim any responsibility for the loss of an uninsured shipment. Unfortunately the contents of parcels are easily “lost” or misdelivered by postal employees – even in the USA. That’s why all of our domestic shipments (and most international) shipments include a USPS delivery confirmation tag; or are trackable or traceable, and all shipments (international and domestic) are insured. We do offer U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail, Registered Mail, and Express Mail for both international and domestic shipments, as well United Parcel Service (UPS) and Federal Express (Fed-Ex). Please ask for a rate quotation. We will accept whatever payment method you are most comfortable with. If upon receipt of the item you are disappointed for any reason whatever, I offer a no questions asked return policy. Send it back, I will give you a complete refund of the purchase price (less our original shipping costs). Most of the items I offer come from the collection of a family friend who was active in the field of Archaeology for over forty years. However many of the items also come from purchases I make in Eastern Europe, India, and from the Levant (Eastern Mediterranean/Near East) from various institutions and dealers. Though I have always had an interest in archaeology, my own academic background was in sociology and cultural anthropology. After my retirement however, I found myself drawn to archaeology as well. Aside from my own personal collection, I have made extensive and frequent additions of my own via purchases on Ebay (of course), as well as many purchases from both dealers and institutions throughout the world - but especially in the Near East and in Eastern Europe. I spend over half of my year out of the United States, and have spent much of my life either in India or Eastern Europe. In fact much of what we generate on Yahoo, Amazon and Ebay goes to support The Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, as well as some other worthy institutions in Europe connected with Anthropology and Archaeology. I acquire some small but interesting collections overseas from time-to-time, and have as well some duplicate items within my own collection which I occasionally decide to part with. Though I have a collection of ancient coins numbering in the tens of thousands, my primary interest is in ancient jewelry. My wife also is an active participant in the "business" of antique and ancient jewelry, and is from Russia. I would be happy to provide you with a certificate/guarantee of authenticity for any item you purchase from me. There is a $2 fee for mailing under separate cover. Whenever I am overseas I have made arrangements for purchases to be shipped out via domestic mail. If I am in the field, you may have to wait for a week or two for a COA to arrive via international air mail. But you can be sure your purchase will arrive properly packaged and promptly - even if I am absent. And when I am in a remote field location with merely a notebook computer, at times I am not able to access my email for a day or two, so be patient, I will always respond to every email.
