The essays are based on the author's interviews with 68 judges. The author traveled extensively for fieldwork for this study between 1983 and 1988. For the deceased judges, the author met and interviewed their widows and children along with their close friends and relatives. The essays embrace the entire lives of these judges and a complete list of each judge's publications, including the official reports prepared by him.
