This timely book presents a critical look at the operation, theoretical basis, and possible reform of the rule against Hearsay in criminal trials. The main focus of the book is on English law, but references also are made to the legal position in a number of other jurisdictions. This work, on a very topical and controversial area of the law, follows closely on the heels of the publication of the Law Commission's consultation paper on Criminal Hearsay.
