KIRKUS REVIEW

A chronological history of British justice, from the primitive, punitive methods of Anglo-Saxon times to the more enlightened present, which shows the emergence and development of the English code of law and its administration through its many branches. nd along with the functions, and powers of jurisdiction of the various courts, there is fair amount of trial drama which revives some of the more spectacular hearings, both criminal and civil. Westminster Hall the first court, the Sheriff's Court- the oldest office in the land, the Assize Courts- the legal clearing house, the Old Bailey, the roner's Court, the Court of Chancery, the House of Lords, the Police Courts, the now polished Court of the Star Chamber, the supreme Court of Empire, the County Court, these and others make up the divers halls of England's legal system and from their records a fairly full calendar of crime has been compiled.....The long arm of the law, however, may extend to an American audience, beyond a special one.
