Surprising: Dershowitz and the Bible. Amusing: how a clever trial lawyer can argue three sides of every case.
Interesting: He finds injustice as a source of justice.
Fascinating: "God's" concept of Justice evolves along with mankind's lines up with Carl Jung's thesis as well (although not referenced in book).
Rewarding: It leaves you stimulated and thinking, "Where does Justice come from?"

Alan Dershowitz isn't suddenly on a religious kick in this book, nor is he knocking religion. He is tracking the historic roots of our modern justice system and does it well. This is not a book for those seeking confirmation of their beliefs or a refutation of the beliefs of others. In the same sense, Genesis is a story of anarchistic society. It was the anarchism that forced the constitutional principles of the Ten Commandments to be written. It was the abuse of organized societies that led to the American and French revolutions. What you see in Dershowitz's book is a depiction of the first abuses, the first anarchy and the first attempt at a democratic constitution.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
