Serghides breaks down the writings of recognized English and American masters of trial advocacy Edward William Cox, William Ballantine, David Paul Brown and Henry Hardwicke into principles that offer specific guidance on cross-examination techniques. "As the book proceeds, the long-established and perfected principles and rules of cross-examination unfold with logical consistency and interrelation and are illustrated by simple and practical references, reminding us that what was obtained in older times is still as valid and relevant today." --Demetrios H.
