Summary
In this volume Plato describes in detail a comprehensive system of legislation in a small agricultural utopia he named Magnesia. His laws not only govern crime and punishment, but also form a code of conduct for life in his ideal state - from education, sport and religion to sexual behaviour, marriages and drinking parties
