Publisher's Summary

The Apology of Socrates, written by Plato, is a Socratic dialogue of the speech of legal self-defense which Socrates spoke at his trial for impiety and corruption in 399 BC. 

Specifically, the Apology of Socrates is a defense against the charges of "corrupting the youth" and "not believing in the gods in whom the city believes, but in other daimonia that are novel" to Athens.  

Among the primary sources about the trial and death of the philosopher Socrates (469-399 BC), The Apology of Socrates is the dialogue that depicts the trial, and is one of four Socratic dialogues, along with Euthyphro, Phaedo, and Crito, through which Plato details the final days of the philosopher Socrates.

Interesting Translation

Good and simple production value coupled with some interesting translational nuances. Absurdly cheap price; well worth purchasing and listening for folks versed - or not versed - in the Classics and Socrates's journey and teachings.
