Literature of the Law by Brian Harris
Book DescriptionThe 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.

Injustice, Hardback (March 2006)» View all books by Brian Harris
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?'.
