Originally published in 1939, this book contains a collection of essays on a number of legal subjects by Baron Wright, who in 1945 became Chair of the United Nations War Crimes Commission. Wright comments on the judgements of a number of cases, as well as on points of law more generally, including the definition of insanity and the development of commercial law in the twentieth century. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in British legal history and the works of Baron Wright.
