This is the first biography in English of King Hammurabi, who ruled Babylon from 1792 to 1750 BC and presents a rounded view of his accomplishments. * Describes how Hammurabi dealt with powerful rivals and extended his kingdom. * Draws on the King's own writings and on diplomatic correspondence that has only recently become available. * Explores the administration of the kingdom and the legacies of his rule, especially his legal code. * Demonstrates how Hammurabi's conquests irrevocably changed the political organization of the Near East, so that he was long remembered as one of the great kings of the past. * Written to be accessible to a general audience.
