    Marie Antoniette or this book circunscribe the topic of history to only one person So, although the books are as short as others in the series, they have depth in their exposition The first part of the book is about the known biography of Hammurabi and the last part is about the analysis of his wordwide famous code Fortunately the author doesn t transcribe the laws but group them and explain their content To be honest that approach, although less academic is far didactic So kudos for the author.Having read already some of the books of the series I have noticed an obsession of the author he tries to search what he perceives unfairness toward women What in appearance is a noble goal in practice means a bias in which a civilization is judged by morals of today and any good treatment, position or contribution of women is not taken in account There are parts of the code that the author points as positive toward women s rights about property or liberty to divorce, nevertheless, despite those rights, the author label the Babylonians of the time of Hammurabi as misogynists because the code has not the same laws regarding equality of genre as most of the world has today I don t think labeling ancestors without knowing the full context is appropriate We don t know, for example, if those laws look oppressive but instead they could be protective in a context of sieges and wars if a city would fall probably the invasor army would attempt to slave, or worse, the feminine population I would not mention this point but if you have got another books from these series you will find the same fixation repeating in all the books echoed again, and again, as a broken disk Also in a part the author instead of writing prisioners of war he writes POWs, sounds anachronic and unnecessary Other than that I found the book written in a good neutral way that don t distract from the history.
