Product Description

"This is a book about the social and political impact of adoption in the Roman world, with the main emphasis on the period from the Gracchi to Hadrian, and a primary interest in its operation in Rome and Italy. It has a different focus from the work of Olli Salomies (1992) which concerns itself with adoptive and polyonomous nomenclature, with a special focus on the imperial period. It has some common ground with Jane Gardner's works, especially Family and Familia in Roman Law and Life (1998), although itis on the whole less legal, and more concerned with the practical operation of adoption in different situations"--Provided by publisher.
