Synopsis

Reviews

 
This classic account of how the judiciary cannot act neutrally, but must act politically, now in its fifth edition John Griffith's controversial book has been fully revised and updated to consider the latest developments in relations between politicians and the judiciary: Michael Howard's conflict with the judges, miscarriages of justice, the Criminal Justice Act, the increased use of Judicial Review, the effects of anti-trade union legislation of the 1980s, and so on. 'An instant classic...it is the achievement of Professor Griffith's book to life the debate to an altogether better level...he has, in effect, thrown down the gauntlet to any believer in the neutrality of the judiciary, or in its independence from government.' Guardian 'Present in detail, cogently and without hysteria, a controversial view.' The Times 'A stimulating and provocative study.' TImes Educational Supplement.
