About this item
This is the highly personal autobiography of the youngest son of a Llanelli tin-plate rollerman who eventually became a distinguished and popular Lord High Chancellor of Great Britain.
Lord Elwyn-Jones's accounts of his involvement in such notorious cases at home and abroad as the Moors murders, The Mummy in the Cupboard, the Murder Without a Body and several Russian spy trails, in such political cases as that of Dr Soblen and of the Ocean Islanders, and in major public inquiries such as that into the Aberfan disaster and the Sharpeville massacre - all make fascinating reading. Equally enthralling are his descriptions of the Rhodesian independence conferences on HMS Tiger and HMS Fearless, and the highlights of his years as Lord Chancellor (1974-79), when he was head of the Judiciary, a Cabinet member under Wilson and Callaghan, and Speaker of the House of Lords.
