    Decent A little hard to comprehend if you lack previous knowledge of Ancient Greek and Latin terms, but it s not too difficult to catch up while you read The parts on Byzantium and the Middle Age are way better written then the previous sections.Sadly, it was a bit of a sterile piece, obviously planned to be a mere summary of the seminary the authors hosted I guess it can be better enjoyed by their colleagues rather than by people who wish to learn a little about consent in ancient societies.
