Editorial Reviews


"[Allen's] analysis of the arguments put forward in Parliament for and against the various bills and his description of how principled support or opposition for reform combined with practical legislative politics are interesting and well-executed. Allen provides an able and enlightening contribution to an under-researched area, and his book should certainly be of interest to those concerned with the history of the law of evidence, as well as to...Victorian legislative processes." Jennifer L. Mnookin, Law & History Review

"Combining social, intellectual, and political factors and using a variety of theories of legal history, Allen has written an interesting story...a story not available elsewhere." Allen Horstman, American Historical Review

Book Description

A fascinating account of the political, social and intellectual influences on the development of evidence law during the Victorian period. This book convincingly challenges the traditional view of the significance of Bentham's critique of the state of contemporary evidence law.
