Chapter Summary

The front matter section of this book The Shape of Herodotean Rhetoric contains the table of contents and the acknowledgements, and a list of abbreviations and a note on text and translations. The book offers a fresh assessment of Herodotus' rhetorical awareness, and explores the ways in which the speeches in Herodotus' final five books emphasize the fragility of Greek unity and the problematic Greco-Persian polarity. The book's focus is on the confluence of legal, political, and religious ideas limited to the time leading up to the beginning at the Hussite wars because the land court ceased activities by 1419 and Ondrej's lawbook was familiar in a practical and applied sense to the generation of nobles who sat on and ran the court prior to the Hussite Revolution.

Keywords: Greco-Persian polarity; Greek unity; Herodotus
