1984年的Landmarks in the Law by Lord Denning, Alfred Thompson Dennin Denning, Bar
Written in Lord Denning's familiar vivid, staccato style, Landmarks in the Law discusses cases and characters whose names will be known to all readers, grouped together under headings such as High Treason, Freedom of the Press, and Murder. Thus, for example, the chapter on High Treason tells the stories of Sir Walter Raleigh, Sir Roger Casement, and William Joyce--three very different cases, the first occurring nearly 350 years before the last, but each one raising constitutional issues of the greatest importance. 此書缺索引 表示北京的法律出版社為善不卒

《法律的界碑》雖然是一本法律著作,但作者巧妙地把歷史和現在的一些界碑性的案件串在一起,用來說明現在英國的一些重要的法律原則。這一樁樁案件像一個個小故事,再加上作者丹寧勳爵從法律角度加以權威性的評點,讀來饒有趣味。你可以隨意瀏覽。在火車上或在睡覺前……  作者簡介 · · · · · ·Lord Denning 英國20世紀最偉大的法律改革家目錄 · · · · · ·第一篇 叛國罪第二篇 刑訊和受賄第三篇 大法官的腳 one of the historic criticisms of equity as it developed was that it had no fixed rules of its own and each Lord Chancellor (who traditionally administered the courts of equity on behalf of the King) gave judgment according to his own conscience. John Selden, an eminent seventeenth century jurist, declared, "Equity varies with the length of the Chancellor's foot."
