Summary This important new book examines in some detail the law relating to confessions, unlawful evidence, and the "right to silence" in the police station. Peter Mirfield also looks closely at the principles behind this branch of the law. In addition to his thorough examination of the English position, he considers several alternative approaches--namely, those taken by Scottish, Irish, Australian, Canadian, and American legal systems. There is no other book written in English that affords such a systematic treatment on this subject.
