In ""Rethinking Legal Need"", the author discovered that where a criminal issue was decided, or who decided it, was usually more significant than the input of advocacy. In this book, this discovery is the starting point for a consideration of the variety of outcomes in the Crown Court as an essay in the geography of justice. It is the author's contention that neither juries nor judges can be considered in isolation from each other, and that their relationship appears to be rather subtle and complex.
