The 20th century saw a period of enormous legal and social change in Britain. In these engaging memoirs Ronald Waterhouse, who sat as one of Britain's leading High Court Judges, provides fascinating frontline insights into the complex British legal system. Waterhouse became a High Court judge in 1978, and went onto lead the biggest inquiry into child abuse ever held in Britain, publishing the highly significant and influential report "Lost in Care" in 2000. From his early career as a barrister at Middle Temple - where his diverse practice included libel, civil and personal injury alongside high-profile cases such as the notorious Moors Murders and the Aberfan Inquiry - to his Queen's Bench appointment in 1988, Waterhouse here presents a detailed and authoritative narrative of British justice in the second half of the 20th century. This unique insider's view will fascinate general readers and prove essential reading for specialists.
