2005 OUP Reprint of the original Butterworths edition

Written in Lord Denning's familiar vivid, staccato style, this entertaining work discusses cases and characters whose names will be known to all readers, grouped together under headings such as High Treason, Freedom of the Press and Murder.

There is also ultimately a detailed examination of what Denning describes as his 'most important case' - the Profumo inquiry, which, although not a law case, was nevertheless 'an inquiry to find out the truth'.

Never afraid to give his opinions on matters of concern to us all, this publication holds wide appeal; its lively readable style and fascinating subject matter will not only interest students, but also laymen, who hear Lord Denning quoted so often.
