SOME WERE SPIES.

Jowitt, The Earl.


£20.00




2nd imp., 1955. 223 pp., foxing mainly to edges & prelims o/w V.G. Bearing in mind public interest in the administration of justice in British courts, Lord Jowitt made a selection of case histories, including certain cases which were heard in camera during the war, from June 1940, until March, 1942, when, as Solicitor-General, he was responsible for the conduct of the trials of persons accused of espionage. Above all, he endeavoured to tell each story in such a way that the reader is tempted to ask himself what verdict he would have returned had the decision been left to him.
