Review Quotes
Professor Dame Hazel Genn DBE QC (hon), University College London
"Never before have our judges been under greater scrutiny. But what they do and how they do it remains mysterious to many. There is an urgency to the themes tackled in this book. It is a must-read for anyone interested in the future of this vital branch of government. Catherine Dobson, St Edmund’s College, Cambridge, “A brilliant, readable and timely survey of a topic of central importance in our troubled times. Joshua Rozenberg has produced a gripping account, including very recent material.” Dinah Rose, QC, Blackstone Chambers, A very readable and engaging book which I'd certainly recommend to students as part of their introduction to common law. It uses high-profile cases to demonstrate how cautiously the judges proceed."
Times Literary Supplement
“A superb introduction to the law in areas as diverse as death, divorce and discrimination [and] also serves as a vigorous defence of judges.”
