Susan Ford Wiltshire traces the evolution of the doctrine of individual rights from antiquity through the eighteenth century. The common thread through that long story is the theory of natural law. Growing out of Greek political thought, especially that of Aristotle, natural law became a major tenet of Stoic philosophy during the Hellenistic age and later became attached to Roman legal doctrine. It underwent several transformations during the Middle Ages on the Continent and in England, especially in the thought of John Locke, before it came to justify a theory of natural right, claimed by Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence as the basis of the "unalienable rights" of Americans.

Wiltshire correctly reminds us that the modern notion of individual rights is missing in antiquity, and offers natural law as "the thread that connects all the episodes" (10) of her story. The second part of the book, called Greek and Roman Antecedents to the Bill of Rights, puts aside the historical panorama of the first part. For the ten amendments to the Constitution comprising the Bill of Rights, we are presented a range of classical antecedents, some Greek and some Roman, depending on which practices fit which amendments.
