THE GENESIS OF JUSTICE Ten Stories of Biblical Injustice that Led to the Ten Commandments and Modern Morality and Law

by | Read by Alan Dershowitz

Contemporary Culture • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2001

Alan Dershowitz, world-famous criminal defense attorney and Harvard Law School professor, is also knowledgeable about Judaism through study and practice. Combining all the elements of his background, he examines 10 stories from the Book of Genesis and shows how they later were codified in the Ten Commandments and elsewhere in the Old Testament, as well as in the Torah and Koran. His discussion culminates in an analysis of how these ideas have shaped modern moral and legal thought. The book grew out of a law school seminar he taught, and Dershowitz's reading is like listening to a good college lecturer. He is animated, yet clear. When the material is particularly complex, he slows down and rephrases key points to enhance understanding. R.C.G. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 01]
