The leading authority in its field, Borrie and Lowe is a comprehensive statement of the law relating to criminal and civil contempt of court.

In its fourth edition, the work includes chapters incorporating: * Human Rights Act 1998 * Children and Young Persons Act 1933 * Youth Justice and Criminal Evidence Act 1999 * Civil Procedure Rules - alternative approaches to prejudicial publicity and how it impacts on different sets of proceedings, recent common law and statutory developments * Discussion on journalists' privilege of non-disclosure of sources * Discusses the growth of digital publications via the Internet and the problems it may cause for jurors - e.g. assuming the guilt of a defendant * Considers whether publication on Internet sites such as Facebook etc. fall into the 'strict liability' contempt under the Contempt of Court Act 1981 * Considers whether search engines such as Google and Yahoo are responsible for prejudicial material published on the Internet that may be liable for contempt
