This book opens with the stories of great reformers of the past - Henry Bracton, Sir Edward Coke, Sir William Blackstone, William Murray and Lord Brougham. Subsequent sections of the book deal with details of proposals for reform in various areas of the law - trial by jury, legal aid, personal injuries, libel, privacy and confidence. As in his other enormously successful books, Lord Denning draws from a wide range of sources to support his arguements and incorporates coverage of many different cases. The book also discusses the proposals for law reform which have come from numerous Royal Commissions, Departmental Committees and Blue Books and which have as yet all been rejected by successive governments. This text will be of great interest, not only to lawyers and law students but to all who are concerned with the future of the law, which 'affects the lives of all of us at some time or other'.
