In a famous debate between two Albanian Princes; Leke Dukagjini and Skanderbeg debated over whether or not something good came out of something bad or vice versa or good must always come from good and something bad always comes from something bad. I will not spoil it for the reader, but, after the long and entertaining debate Skanderbeg declared ''leke e ka thënë''; ''Leke has said it'' i.e., that is the final word. From that moment forward that line was repeated whenever anyone questioned a judgement. This code, attributed to the Great Albanian Prince has its origins in ancient times: Illyrian to Medieval. It ''s been said the Pope at the time had threatened Leke with excommunication because of it. I guess Leke''s word was more powerful than the Pope. Thankfully, Leke codified it with its Clan/Fis justice system; orally passed down showing its strength. It has lasted longer than our American Constitution and in more recent times served as the reasoning behind Albanians'' (code of Besa), risking their own lives to save fleeing Jews during WWII.

I recently had an email going back and forth with an Albanian "scholar" that claimed Leke''s achievements weren''t substantial and questioned the authenticity of the code being attributed to him. As i debated wit him it finally hit me that this supposed Scholar will be long forgotten while Leke''s name will live on.

An American, I was initially inspired to look deeper into the Kanuni because of the Ayatollah Khumani''s "Little Green Book." Hmmm, I wonder if the Kanuni is online too? Not completely. Though both are informed by different religious inspirations, there are similarities in that they seek to answer the BIG question, "How then, shall we live?", while offering counsel on even the tiniest details. The Kanuni is largely compassionate compared to the Little Green Book, and it has helped me understand better the traditions of my northern Albanian in-laws and wife. It''s also good for comic relief in our "mixed" marriage, i.e. "Well, honey, the Kanuni clearly states..." I''m no academic, but I love Albania, and I''m grateful that this book exists. I''ll bet Leke Dukagjinit is happy with it, too.

thank you so much for being able to show and teach people the morals and values of the ancient Albanians, I think the world would appreciate more the history and the identity of the Albanians while learning from books like this. Albanians are a people of respect, honor and loyalty and not like the movies and games they make for Albanians. and with books like this people and nations can learn the true Albanians and of the Albanian culture. I want to thank so much the people who took the time and dedication to write this wonderful book of ancient codes. again thank you
