Product Description

Based on Alan Dershowitz's class at Harvard Law School, The Genesis of Justice shows how the Good Book is also a remarkable law book. According to Dershowitz, these seminal stories describe a people-and a God-struggling in a world before the invention of systematic rules, a primal place that predates our notions of fairness, honesty, and "rights." Yet here in Genesis we can see these concepts-and the need for them and for their embodiment in a formal legal system-evolving in front of our eyes.
