However, the book also argues that one can see petitioning and litigation being abused sometimes for the pursuit of hatreds, feuds, and vengeance.

It does this by exploiting the many hundreds of legal documents surviving on papyrus, especially petitions, reports of court proceedings, and letters. However, the book also argues that one can see petitioning and litigation being abused sometimes for the pursuit of hatreds, feuds, and vengeance. It must be recognized, therefore, that the social impacts of petitioning and litigation were multifaceted, and in some senses even contradictory.

Noreña brings the commonest types into the foreground and through a meticulous and detailed analysis shows that these images may well have had a much more important function (whether deliberately intended or not) than normally thought in spreading the virtues of the emperor and thereby helping to unify the Roman empire.

This book examines the contribution that petitioning and litigation made to the maintenance of the social order in Roman Egypt between 30 BC and AD 284. Through the analysis of the many hundreds of documents survivingon papyrus, especially petitions, reports of court proceedings, and letters, Kelly focuses on how the legal system achieved its formal goals (that is, the resolution of disputes through judgments), and discusses in detail the contribution made by the litigation process to informal methods of social control. With particular emphasis on the roles that this process played in the transmission of political ideologies, in the maintenance of family solidarity, and in the fostering of 'private' mechanisms of dispute resolution, the book argues that although the legal system was less than successful when judged by its formal aims, it did have a real social impact by contributing indirectly to some of the informal mechanisms that ensured order in this province of the Roman Empire. However, arguing that, on occasion, one can also see petitioning and litigation being abused for the pursuit of feud and vengeance, Kelly also recognizes that the social impacts of petitioning and litigation were multifaceted, and in some senses even contradictory.
