Sir Stephen Sedley has published a new book, 'Law and the Whirligig of Time'.
Drawing on over 30 years of experience of the law, first as a QC, then as a judge, and latterly as a visiting professor of law at Oxford, Stephen Sedley has written and lectured widely for a variety of audiences.
This new volume contains more recent articles by Stephen Sedley on the law, many of them from the London Review of Books.
The first part is concerned with law as part of history - Feste's 'whirligig of time'; the second part with law and rights.
The third part is a group of biographical and critical pieces on a number of figures from the legal and musical worlds. The final part is more personal, going back to the author's days at the bar, and then forward to some parting reflections.
