    Non-Domination and the Libera Res Publica in Cicero's Republicanism.Jed W. Atkins - 2018 - History of European Ideas 44 (6):756-773.

    A prolific philosopher who also held Rome's highest political office, Cicero was uniquely qualified to write on political philosophy. In this book Professor Atkins provides a fresh interpretation of Cicero's central political dialogues - the Republic and Laws.
