Paperback. The colour of a nation's justice is a key to its true character. Possibly no country's legal system has produced a finer blend of rhetoric and rogueishness, of precision and panache, of judgement and justice, than Ireland. The author has collectd the highlights of Ireland's leading counsel and cases, ranging from the courtroom heroics of nationalists to sudden flashes of brilliance from jurists, eccentrics and masters of eloquence. Here are the silks who defended the famous and the infamous. Here are the classic cases which made the reputations of many great lawyers,. Tim Healy, Roger Casement, Erskine Childers, John Mitchel, their names echo through the courts of Irish history: they and many others are the plaintiffs in the celebrated defences and prosecutions of the Irish at Law. 261pp. mass market p/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Lightly browned pp., no creasing to covers. Nr. F.
