In addition to, updated and expanded chapters on the rights of suspects, rights of defendants, rights of prisoners, rights of immigrants and the rights of families and children.

Written by leading lawyers and campaigners at Liberty, this is the ultimate reference handbook for specialists and general readers alike.
'A very useful general guide. It is the kind of book that everyone needs from time to time, whether it is to decide whether there are grounds for using the law or just to check up on something. It is well laid out and easy to use'
