The Code of Hammurabi

The Code of Hammurabi - Hammurabi Not a book you would read for enjoyment, but still a good to read if you are majoring in world history or criminal justice. The code is basically an eye for an eye, while someone are pretty much the same now as it was before, I just felt like some crimes deserved more punishment. Like if a son where to hit his father the son would have his fingers cut off, but if a man where to hit a woman which caused a miscarriage he would have to pay her money, which to me that man deserves to have his fingers cut off. But anyway as I said not a book you pick up for enjoyment but it is an enlightening read.
