Sulzberger, Mayer. The Ancient Hebrew Law of Homicide. Originally published: Philadelphia: Julius H. Greenstone, 1915. [vi], 160 pp. Reprinted 2004, 2018 by the Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. ISBN-13: 9781584774655; ISBN-10: 1584774657. Hardcover. New. $21.95 * A compilation of five lectures, this work is notable for both its breadth of learning and its cogency of argument. It is also an impressive work of biblical exegesis. Ranging from the Am Haaretz to "The Polity of the Ancient Hebrews," it places homicide in the wider context of Jewish history, jurisprudence and government. An especially useful feature is the detailed index of cited Biblical passages. Sulzberger, a noted Philadelphia orator and philanthropist, was elected judge of the Court of Common Pleas in 1895 and reelected in 1904.
