Sir Louis Blom-Cooper has had a distinguished career as QC, Chairman of Inquiries, advocate of Human Rights and campaigning author. This book is a collection of essays on topical and controversial issues. As one would expect of the author, he constantly expresses individual views and challenges orthodox opinion. The essays cover such diverse subjects as judicial review, Human Rights, the need for a new Homicide Act, trial by jury, criminal sentencing and penal policy, media freedom and regulation of the Press and include a number of diverting tales from his life at the Bar and pen-portraits of leading judges. It is only possible within the scope of this review to comment on some of the essays.
