Justice at Work is written primarily for the general reader, but it will also be welcomed by adult students in Britain and overseas.
Great care has been taken to make it as up-to-date as possible. Part I, "Law in the Courts", deals with judges, magistrates, witnesses, prisoners, tribunals, and concludes with a close-up of what goes on in a judge's mind when he decides a case (the summing-up in the "Brides in the Bath" case is analysed).
Part II, "Law in the Cases", ranges over treason, murder and manslaughter, evidence of death, freedom of speech, treasure-trove, betting and gambling, sex and psychology, Part III, "Law in the Com¬munity", explains a number of random activities of the Law as they impinge on the citizen within his own home and neighbourhood, affecting husbands and wives, dogs, hire purchase, debtors, motoring.
Part IV, "Law in the Government", reviews the day-to-day functions of the chief law¬makers, in and behind the Cabinet (the Prime Minister, Home Secretary, Attorney-General, etc.), and tells how electors should behave: Amusing anecdotes enliven the pages, and there are numerous references to famous cases.
