Book Description:
Hammurabi was an important leader in ancient Mesopotamia. Following the model of the warrior king Sargon, Hammurabi built the tiny city state of Babylon into a vast empire. He was recognized as a hands on ruler. Not content to delegate duties to governors and advisors, Hammurabi was personally involved with all the goings on in his empire. From the digging of canals to the construction of huge temples, Hammurabi was not only informed, he was in charge. Hammurabi was very interested in justice and fairness. He thought of himself as the shepherd and protector of all his people. He wanted everyone, the poor and the wealthy, to be treated fairly. In the second half of his reign, Hammurabi compiled a lengthy collection of laws into a single code. It is one of the oldest known law codes. You can find reminders of this ancient code in law books around the world.
