Quick Overview

LEGAL FICTIONS: A SERIES OF CASES FROM THE CLASSICS "LEGAL FICTIONS recounts some imaginary litigation on classical subjects. Each of the ten reports is well worth reading and should not be beyond the comprehension of any layman. Miss Diana Pullinger contributes some sprightly illustrations" - Punch.

"Considerable learning, both classical and legal, has gone to the making of this amusing book. It does not obtrude, but adds relish to the wit. It is to be hoped that Mr. Polak will soon give us another instalment of LEGAL FICTIONS" -Truth.

MORE LEGAL FICTIONS: A SERIES OF CASES FROM SHAKESPEAR "The same delicious mixture of wit and learning... This second volume will be enjoyed still more thoroughly than the first." - Truth.

"This is the second volume in the important series of law reports which Mr. Polak began last year... This book is good jesting and lawyers will love it!" - Law Quarterly Review

"Well-known characters from Shakespeare here appear in the modern courts. The judgments are ingenious, the parodying of the modern judicial idiom is most successful. No reviewer can do them justice - they have to be read; enjoyment and instruction are guaranteed." - Cambridge Law Journal

FINAL LEGAL FICTIONS: These are imaginary law cases founded on well-known stories form the Operas and Folk-lore. Among the Operas chosen are: Faust, Hansel and Gretel, Don Giovanni, Madame Butterfly, and the Flying Dutchman. The other tales are: Jack and the Beanstalk (an action for nuisance caused by excessive growth of a bean plant), Cupid and psyche (petition by wife for divorce on the ground of desertion, she having disobeyed her husband's orders not to enquire into his identity), and the Siege of Troy, where a fifth columnist escaping from a warlike object in the form of a horse, injures Cassandra by a blow on the head causing her to lose her prophetic powers.

The whole is enlivened, as before, by the sprightly illustrations of Diana Pullinger; it can be understood by the layman, and contains much instruction for law students and others interested in the law.
