Considered the greatest proponent of common law in the 20th century, Sir Owen Dixon stood on the high court of Australia, served as an ambassador to the United States, and mediated conflict between India and Pakistan over Kashmir. This biography presents a textured view of Dixon through use of primary sources such as Dixon's personal diaries and letters, official correspondence from archival sources, photographs, interviews from friends and family, and government reports. Attention to personal conflicts and dramatic storytelling results in a dynamic image of this renowned barrister and judge.
