This is a book of outstanding merit for it deals with the whole field of advocacy in a logical and objective manner with particular reference to the technique of cross-examination. It is new in every way, the approach is analytical.

'It is learned, lively and critical and delightfully written. It gives a clear account of the technique of interrogation and the fallacies of testimony; examination-in-chief; the aims and limits of cross-examination, in detail, its preparation and planning; legal proof and the formulation of arguments; the construction and arrangement of the speeches and general strategy and tactics.

There are quotations from notable cross-examinations, and the points are brought home by carefully chosen examples from the methods of distinguished advocates. Nothing has been left undone in providing the beginner with practical instruc¬tion and encouragement, and even the " old hand" will find it stimulating and instructive.'
-Cambridge Law Journal.

'We recommend every advocate who feels the need for self-improvement and every student¬advocate to read this book. He will find it useful, instructive, stimulating, and at the same time entertaining.'
-Law Society's Gazette.

'The only serious complaint about Mr. Munkman's book is that there is not more of it. As it is, there is probably no better book which can be put into the hands of the recently qualified practitioner.'
-Law Quarterly Review.
