2008 Reprint of the original Butterworths edition

The book contains a fascinating account of some of the leading issues of the day, in which Lord Denning has played a singular part.

He discusses the problems of statutory interpretation, he traces the bumpy course of trade union legislation from 1906 to the present, and finally, he identifies the series of cases on which he and the Court of Appeal have been, or have appeared to have been, on collision course with the House of Lords.
