Six of his professional legal speeches are included in this new edition, both for their intrinsic interest and for the accessibility of their language.

In his introduction, Dr. Carey discusses Lysias life and place in the evolution of Greek prose style and in the development of Greek rhetoric. He approaches the speeches as attempts to secure a verdict favorable to the speaker and assesses how effectively the selection and deployment of arguments promote this end. He addresses textual issues and problems of Lysias style and syntax, while focusing particularly on literary concerns: Lysias use of rhetorical devices, his marshalling of fact and argument and his manipulation of contemporary values and prejudices.
