Owen Rogers draws on a wealth of published and archival material to present a lively, occasionally provocative, account of the lawyers caught up in the Jameson Raid – in the dock, at the bar, on the bench, behind the scenes. Was Kotzé CJ faithful to Kruger as he would have us believe? Did Pretoria bar’s future leader, Ewald Esselen, belong to an anti-Kruger Boer fifth column? Was Johannesburg’s Jim Leonard QC part of the conspiracy’s inner core or an innocent latecomer? And how should we jidge his brother Charles, a leading attorney, who managed to evade trial? These and other questions are explored in a full work of drama, incident and anecdote.
