Some brief overview of book

Plato's Socrates, in prison & being urged to flee execution, raises in acute form, & for the 1st time in European thought, a central question: is it right to disobey the state? Socrate's controversial answer in Crito has generated much contemporary literature, but no English commentary of the Greek text for seventy-five years. This new edition aims to provide an up-to-date literary & philosophical analysis suitable for a wide range of readers, including those with post-beginners Greek.

It represents an ideal introduction, not only to the social & philosophical world of Classical Greece, but also to the personality of one of its greatest thinkers.
