The inspiring story of law through the ages is told in this beautiful volume through the media of painting, photography, fiction, essay, poetry, and much more. Brought together for the first time in a lavishly illustrated, large-format book are excerpts from great writings in law, such as Justinian's the Digest of Roman Law, Cicero's Laws, and Paine's Common Sense. The 198 illustrations, 113 of which are exquisitely reproduced in full color, draw upon enduring works of art related to the law, including Rembrandt's Moses and the Tables of the Law, Trumbull's The Signing of the Declaration of Independence, and Shan's The Passion of Sacco and Vanzetti.
