In The Law of Evidence in Victorian England, Christopher Allen provides a fascinating account of the political, social and intellectual influences on the development of evidence law during the Victorian period. His book convincingly challenges the traditional view of the significance of Bentham's critique of the state of contemporary evidence law, and describes instead the extent to which ongoing common law developments had already anticipated many of the improvements for which Bentham has usually been credited as the instigator.
