In this fourth installment of Dr. David Neiman's second lecture on the "Cradles of Civilization", Dr. Neiman comments on the many policies of Hammurabi that were of benefit to his people and to those nations that he conquered throughout his many campaigns. Hammurabi is described as an absolute ruler, but a ruler who felt at one with his people and enacted polices to improve their lives.
