Editorial Reviews

"This book deals with English and Australian law with a thoroughness which cannot be found elsewhere. Whilst the work may appear to be academic, it is of immense use to the practitioner ... the opportunity for an excursion into legal history is one of the delights of the book." --Solicitors Journal
