Hammurabi's code was not really the earliest. The preceding sets of laws have disappeared, but we have found several traces of them, and Hammurabi's own code clearly implies their existence. He is but reorganizing a legal system long established. Claude Hermann Walter Johns: BABYLONIAN LAW-The Code of Hammurabi. The material for the study of Babylonian law is singularly extensive without being exhaustive.

Hammurabi was the ruler who chiefly established the greatness of Babylon, the world's first metropolis. Many relics of Hammurabi's reign () have been preserved, and today we can study this remarkable King, as a wise law-giver in his celebrated code.

I know I should have read the description - but this is incredibly short. I believe this book is now more of an academic reference than something you sit down and read. All I can grade it on is the translation and binding. The cover and binding looks to me like something from the 70s.. but thats not a bad thing. I like the sterile feel of this book. It is very academic feeling (and reading). Those of you looking at this book I am sure know what it is.. I am not sure if this is the best option for everyone - I feel it is expensive for what it is and I would recommend Kindle if you are looking to read it. If you are looking to keep it - this version is excellent - but as I mentioned - expensive.

If I were to do it all over again I would buy this one: http://www.amazon.com/The-Code-Hammurabi-Forgotten-Books/dp/1605060518/ref=pd_sim_b_9?ie=UTF8&refRID=1Q8GXEFHA2W1X5BZPS29

It is nicer looking (the cover) and is more than half the price.

I needed a source for a research paper discussing the code of hummurabi. This is literally the code of Hammurabi and the rest of the text from the pillar.

An interesting study in the historical aspects of law and order in ancient times. Many of the laws still have application in our laws and rules of civilized behavior,though the punishments are not as harsh or cruel. Everyone should read this at least once.

Sorryyy
It is great to be able to read such an old book of laws, some very harsh, but some others would be all right even today. Additionally, the reader will find out a lot about structure of the ancient society and their beliefs. Recommended especially for those interested in history.

Delari
I read this book simply to expand my understanding of historical thinking. This book delivered. The code seemed to be translated as literal as possible while being kept readable or understandable in modern-day language.

Amhirishes
Even though these were not the first laws in history at this dispensation this book was very interesting in some of the harshest punishments. What may have been unlikely was what was needed to get the job done.

AGAD
A good traduction of the Code of Hammurabi. An important and historic document that help see how society and morals have evolved through time.

I've read better, but... Hey! This was free.
