The author has considered the court, and the voluminous jurisprudence relating to it, from every conceivable angle. There are chapters devoted to the historical and political background, and to the various (and largely unsuccessful) challenges to the Offences against the State regime. Every legal point and practice direction has been painstakingly pored over. In addition, the author has gathered material that is not readily accessible elsewhere: to give the most comprehensive overview she has sourced transcripts of trials and newspaper reports so that key ex tempore rulings are drawn together most usefully.
