Synopsis

Discover the big ideas behind more than 90 of history's most important legal rulings and milestone laws - from the earliest civilizations to the 21st century.

From the philosophical, religious, and moral codes of the world's earliest societies, such as the Law Code of Hammurabi and the Ten Commandments, through groundbreaking legislation such as The Book of Punishments, Magna Carta and the Slavery Abolition Act, The Law Book offers an engaging and accessible overview of legal history across the world all the way into the 21st century with copyright in the digital age, gay marriage, and the "right to be forgotten". With entries on the fight for universal suffrage and workers' rights, and the establishment of international legal bodies like INTERPOL and the European Court of Justice, The Law Book explores and explains the stories behind each milestone development.

Using the Big Ideas series' trademark combination of authoritative, informative text, The Law Book makes each entry accessible and easy to understand. Packed with inspirational quotations and more, it offers essential listening for anyone with a professional or personal interest in law, the legal system, or history and social change.
