Literature of the Law by Brian Harris

Book Description

The Literature of the Law brings together examples of the very best in judicial pronouncements over four centuries and two continents. Assembled into themes, such as life and death deicisions, freedom of speech and the protection of minorities, they form a fascinating summary of the law's interaction with society. The Literature of the Law also paints an intriguing and sometimes humorous picture of the lawyer's life in and out of court, illustrating with examples some of the different styles of advocacy. The text is stripped of legal references, which might get in the way of the general reader, and is finished with a number of line illustrations of legal London.

Remembered by Brian Harris Remembered, Hardback (April 2007)

Charting the development of the magnificent cemeteries and memorials built in 150 countries, this work emphasizes the importance of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission's work not only in commemorating the dead, but also in preserving the sites of some of the most historically significant battles of the twentieth century.

Injustice by Brian Harris Injustice, Hardback (March 2006)

To a lawyer, injustice is the unfair conduct of a trial. This book looks into several notorious cases of supposed injustice, Socrates, Joan of Arc, Charles I, Admiral Byng, Lord Haw-Haw, and the Nuremberg Trials. It looks for answers to the legal question 'was the trial fair?', and the humane question 'was the accused guilty or innocent?'.
