The Law Book Summary

The Law Book: From Hammurabi to the International Criminal Court, 250 Milestones in the History of Law by Michael H. Roffer

Join author Michael H. Roffer as he explores 250 of the most fundamental, far-reaching, and often-controversial cases, laws, and trials that have profoundly changed our world - for good or bad. Offering authoritative context to ancient documents as well as today's hot-button issues, The Law Book presents a comprehensive look at the rules by which we live our lives. It covers such diverse topics as the Code of Hammurabi, the Ten Commandments, the Trial of Socrates, women's suffrage, and more. Roffer takes us around the globe to ancient Rome and medieval England before transporting us forward to contemporary accounts that tackle everything from civil rights and assisted suicide to Google Books and the fight for marriage equality. Organised chronologically, the entries each consist of a short essay and a stunning full-colour image, while the Notes and Further Reading section provides resources for more in-depth study.
