A translation of ancient legal sources such as the Code of Hammurabi, laws relating to contracts, marriage, inheritance, slavery, property, sales, land tenure, and more will show the reader the law and the law-courts, the rights of the State, the family and the individual, and property matters as they existed, and their similarity to today's legal system. One of Johns' most substantial works, written while he was lecturer in Assyriology at Queens' College, Cambridge - with his extensive commentary accompanying his English translation.
