The End of Obscenity: The Trials of Lady Chatterley, Tropic of Cancer & Fanny Hill by the Lawyer Who Defended Them

'“A quiet and essentially modest account of a legal revolution.” —Norman Mailer   “A downright delight, a tour de force to fascinate lawyers and laymen alike.” —The New York Times Book Review   “Erudition and wit, moral conviction and literary style . . . Mr. Rembar is as much social critic and intellectual advocate as lawyer.” —The National Observer   “[Rembar’s] book deals not with the why of obscenity laws but with the how, and as a result often has a freshness that little recent writing on this subject can match. . . . The story of his oral argument before the Supreme Court in the Fanny Hill case is especially dramatic and enlightening, and many of his anecdotal digressions into history and law are sharp and amusing.” —The New Republic   “A lively volume and often witty . . . Fun withal and instructive.” —Commentary   “[Rembar] talked our courts, state and federal, into capsizing more than a century of court-blessed censorship.” —The New York TimesPraise for Charles Rembar “[Charles Rembar’s] books read like an afternoon spent talking with a witty and irreverent observer of (and participant in) some of the most important legal and political controversies of our time, filled with keen insights and peppered with quirky asides.” —Los Angeles Review of Books'
