Summary

A radical lawyer with an unparalleled commitment to his clients, driven by anger at injustice and hypocrisy, intelligent, handsome and dynamic, Michael Mansfield has been tearing down the citadels of arcane legal conventions for more than forty years. Unafraid of rejection or failure, Michael has taken on the most difficult and challenging cases of our times and despite the odds, won plenty. In Memoirs of a Radical Lawyer Michael dissects many of them, revealing his motivations, meticulous approach to forensic science, cross examination techniques, the political dimensions and emotional reactions with clarity, subtlety and charm. Interspersed with personal anecdotes and recollections, this insightful book is liberally laced with Michael's quirky brand of anarchic humour. 
 
 
Cases range from the Angry Brigade, the Bradford 12, the Birmingham Six, the Bloody Sunday Inquiry, Angela Cannings, Jill Dando, Ruth Ellis, Dodi Fayed, the 'Fertilizer' conspiracy, Iraqi hi-jackers, Stephen Lawrence, Fatmir Limaj (Leader of the Kosovan Liberation Army), the Marchioness Disaster, the Price sisters, the 'Ricin' trial, Risley prison riots, Tahira Tabassum, Judith Ward, Arthur Scargill and the miners to the Jean Charles de Menezes inquiry, and many more. Issues of public concern, human rights and innovative attempts to construct a democratic legal system are discussed in full, but Memoirs of a Radical Lawyer also unveils with honesty and wit a man who has put as much passion and energy into his life as his work, one of the great personalities of our time.

    Naked, hooded and suspended from the ceiling of my dungeon by his wrists and ankles, Agent Whitmore was helpless as he dangled face up, three feet above the floor. It was entertaining to see him squirm against the rough black leather cuffs above the cold, damp grey concrete floor, like an insect trapped in my web struggling to get free. To me, he was just a bug who’s wings I was about to pluck from its body as I lay in wait in the shadows. Every crevice, every orifice of his body utterly vulnerable to my attack. There was no escape.”

    Two novellas about men obsessed with women who are both captive and captivating. “Breedlowe’s Obsession,” that’s what the old boys called it, most often followed by a nudge, and a knowing wink. But they would never know, or even suspect, the lengths to which that obsession will be carried, once their former classmate has acquired the necessary wealth and considerable leisure to fully indulge his insatiable appetite for feminine beauty. “Nathan’s Circle” – that was the name the five women gave themselves as a sort of joke. They might laugh among themselves, but each knew that she and her sisters were bound to the man, inextricably drawn by the magnetic force of his powerful personality. Once captured, they were held in place by their shared addiction to the curious little sex toys he had devised for their pleasure. Nathan knew what it took to turn a girl on – even by remote control!
