The Hammurabi Code and its origin and influence on subsequent codes of law, has fascinated people since its discovery.

This edition of the original translation by the Assyriologist Edward John Pilcher, contains the author's comparison with both the Mosaic Legislation, and early Roman Law: and has been updated and enlarged to include additional material dealing with the origin and meaning of the Code.

Writing as 'Chilperic Edwards', Pilcher provides a translation that presents a vivid and engrossing portrait of the richness and diversity of early Babylonian Society; which although undoubtedly brutal, was in many ways surprisingly egalitarian in both outlook and structure.
