Against the Wind tells the story of an ethnic barrister's efforts in the mid-seventies to find a seat in Chambers to practise his profession at the English Bar. Notwithstanding considerable experience in civil litigation at the Trinidad Bar, the writer tells of his struggles, and the hurdles to be surmounted. The author recalls some of his interesting cases: a Jamaican's self-built boat in which he intended a round the world voyage being scuttled by the British Waterways Board; the Irishman who survived a fall into the foundations of a construction site; two Pakistanis charged with rape by recklessness; and an apprentice at British Rail, Derby whose injury at work caused him to suffer uncontrollable laughter. The book, hopefully, might serve as some encouragement to practitioners similarly circumstanced or others entering the profession--never to throw in the sponge but rather to face the difficulties ahead with patience, determination and courage.
