Beschreibung des Verlags
The story of Hammurabi is the story of forty-three years jampacked with conquest, temple and wall building, irrigation efforts, and lawmaking, but it's also a story of broken relations and rising and falling empires.
It's a story of betrayal and shifting alliances, a story where even the gods take a backseat to the matters of common men. It's a tale that's both thousands of years old and, interestingly enough, just as contemporary as it was when Hammurabi still drew breath. And, like all great tales of history, it's a yarn that teaches the common man that no feat of greatness comes without a price and that human nature is just as complex as it was when Babylonians praised Marduk and hailed Hammurabi as a god in his own right.
