A commentary on Cicero, De Officiis by Andrew R Dyck( Book )

14 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and held by 460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Composed in haste shortly before Cicero's death, De Officiis has exercised enormous influence over the centuries. It is all the more surprising that Andrew R. Dyck's volume is the first detailed English commentary on the work written in this century. It deals with the problems of the Latin text (taking account of Michael Winterbottom's new edition), it delineates the work's structure and sometimes elusive train of thought, clarifies the underlying Greek and Latin concepts, and provides starting points for approaching the philosophical and historical problems that De Officiis raises. A work of major importance for classicists, philosophers, and ancient historians, this commentary will be an invaluable companion to all readers of Cicero's last philosophical work
A commentary on Cicero, De legibus by Andrew R Dyck( Book )

12 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Just as Plato drafted a vision of an ideal state in his Republic and followed that up with detailed provisions in his Laws, so Cicero, after writing Republic, wanted to provide legislation for his ideal state and thus wrote the Laws as a sequel. But whereas Cicero's Republic was set shortly before the death of its main speaker, Scipio Africanus, in 129 B.C., Cicero set his Laws in his own lifetime, enabling him to comment on current political trends. The unique value of the Laws of Cicero is that it is a work written at the end of the Roman republic that gives Cicero's own diagnosis of the ills that plagued the Roman state and what might be done to cure them."
The nature of the gods by Marcus Tullius Cicero( Book )

23 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and Latin and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cicero's philosophical works are now exciting renewed interest and more generous appreciation, in part because he provides vital evidence of the views of the (largely lost) Greek philosophers of the Hellenistic age, and partly because of the light he casts on the intellectual life of first-century Rome. Hellenistic philosophy has in recent years attracted growing interest from academic philosophers in Europe and in North America. The Nature of the Gods is a document of central significance in this area, for it presents a detailed account of the theologies of the Epicureans and of the Stoics, together with the critical objections to these doctrines raised by the Academic school. When these Greek theories of deity are translated into the Roman context, a fascinating clash of ideologies results."--Jacket

Pro Sexto Roscio by Marcus Tullius Cicero( Book )

11 editions published in 2010 in English and Latin and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sextus Roscius was murdered in Rome some months after the official end of the Sullan proscriptions on 1 June 81 BC. The case was tried early the following year with a young Cicero acting as defense counsel in his first criminal case for the accused son. Though a novice, Cicero was able to tap into the public anger over the uncontrolled killing and looting of the proscriptions and channel it against the men behind the prosecution, T. Roscius Magnus and T. Roscius Capito. Cicero won a career-making victory, establishing his reputation as a formidable advocate. This, the first new edition of the work in English to be published for almost a century, provides a Latin text and commentary updated to take account of advances in the study of the Latin language as well as Roman institutions, law and society. It is suitable for use with upper-level undergraduates and graduate students"--Provided by publisher
Speeches on behalf of Marcus Fonteius and Marcus Aemilius Scaurus by Andrew R Dyck( Book )

8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Besides his renowned prosecution of Gaius Verres, Cicero also appeared as defence counsel in a number of cases in which former governors were accused of misconduct in the provinces. This volume unites two such defences, both incompletely preserved, from an early phase of Cicero's career (ca. 69 BC) and from his maturity (54 BC). The first speech is on behalf of Marcus Fonteius. Fonteius was governor of Transalpine Gaul probably from 74 to 72 BC, a time when the Romans were consolidating their control of that province and simultaneously fighting a bitter war with rebels under Sertorius in the Iberian Peninsula. Cicero defends Fonteius with the argument that his measures, though severe, were in the state interest. The second speech is on behalf of Marcus Aemilius Scaurus, governor of Sardinia in 55, whose charges included not only peculation but also cruelty and hounding a woman to suicide through his unwanted attentions. In both cases Cicero seeks to stir Roman prejudice against the foreign witnesses testifying for the prosecution. The outcome of Fonteius' case is not clear from surviving evidence, but Scaurus was acquitted, only to be condemned and exiled on charges of corrupt electoral practices three years later. Dyck's volume provides a general introduction on the Roman extortion court and, for each speech, an introduction, English translation, and the first detailed commentary in English"--
