A third edition of Jesting Pilate with Susan Crennan and William Gummow (eds), was published by Federation Press in 2019. It is edited by Susan Crennan and William Gummow, both former justices of the High Court. The editors had access to a considerable volume of Sir Owen’s papers and added some extra pieces, by Sir Owen himself and by others reflecting on his work. They also reorganised the papers and added a jointly authored, carefully considered introduction of their own. This new edition is welcome for the additional insights that it offers into Sir Owen’s contributions to Australian law and for making these important writings available to new generations of lawyers.
