Publisher's Summary

From time immemorial, man has sought to explicate a set of laws which would include both some form of morality and justice for the common people. The Code of Hammurabi, developed in ancient Babylonian society, is no exception to that general rule. It is the earliest formulation of a legal code that archaeologists have yet uncovered, and dates from a period roughly 1800 years before the birth of Jesus Christ.

It contains cuneiform engravings which are significant, indeed, and were not even discovered before a Frenchman found them in the very early 20th century.

Thus, it was nearly 3,700 years that the engraved rock tablets sat, before being rediscovered in the modern era. Incredible!
