'Michael Mansfield has given power to the voiceless, the innocents ... For this, he too is a hero' - JOHN PILGER 'Michael Mansfield combines rare humanity with a brilliant understanding of the law' - JON SNOW 'A book of great importance ... Mr Mansfield's thoughtful reflections demand our attention' - KEN LOACH 'I want this book to inspire people, give them a blueprint for fighting their own battles, and challenge the status quo. To see that together, we are always stronger. To understand that those who stand in the way of change cannot do so forever.' Michael Mansfield, KC Barrister Michael Mansfield, KC, has spent his career fighting injustice, persecution and corruption. And be it the Birmingham Six, Bloody Sunday, Stephen Lawrence, the Marchioness, Hillsborough or Grenfell, he has come to learn one thing - that people power is unstoppable. Time and again he has witnessed governments, police forces, legal institutions and the establishment, try to block change and maintain the status quo in order to protect their interests. But almost every time he has seen that passion, perseverance, collectivity and courage create a powerful momentum which is increasingly difficult to stop. In this short but powerful book, the veteran barrister draws upon his 50 years of fighting for justice and revisits his most important cases and clients, proving without doubt that when people get together they can make lasting and positive change.

He has fought for the Orgreave miners and for the families of victims of Bloody Sunday, Hillsborough, the Marchioness, Lockerbie and Grenfell, as well as for the parents of Stephen Lawrence. Following the tragic death of his daughter by suicide in 2015, he and his wife, Yvette, set up the charity SOS to campaign for the provision of mental health support and suicide awareness. He has published several books including his autobiography, Memoirs of a Radical Lawyer(Bloomsbury, 2009). In 2017 Michael celebrated 50 years at the bar, but shows no sign of retiring, in fact he recently launched a podcast Two Heads with fellow barrister Lorna Hackett. He lives with Yvette near Stratford On Avon, Warwickshire.
