The Closing Chapter contains, in Book One, a sequel to Lord Denning's autobiography, The Family Story/I. In it he tells with disarming and touching candour of the circumstances of the publication and withdrawal of What Next in the Law/I and of his decision to retire from the Master of theRolls. Book Two contains a fascinating account of some of the leading contentious legal issues of the day, in which he has played a singular part.
Lord Alfred Denning, Baron Denning (Dec.)
