The cause was a legal case lasting in total an impressive 192 years and the authors understandably provide a literary reference point in Jarndyce versus Jarndyce. However, anyone looking for an explanation would be better off ignoring Dickens and seeking out commentaries on Jane Austen's most famous work. As Mrs Bennet says "I do think it is the hardest thing in the world that your estate should be entailed away from your own children; and I am sure if I had been you, I should have tried long ago to do something or other about it." Well Lord Berkeley did just that.
The book is well written, entertaining and informative - except perhaps about the battle itself. Its scope ranges from Edward the Confessor's advisors to the 19th century horse-whipping of an offending editor with a major digression through 15th century politics. Recommended.
