Editorial Reviews

Review from previous edition: "This book is a thorough and detailed exposition of the subject that will repay many return visits. The fluid nature of equality law means that it is always hard to pin down and difficult to know when to stop. For equality law practitioners and academics alikeit will provide a significant source of information and ideas that will be a welcome addition to equality library." --Gay Moon, Head of the Equality Project, JUSTICE
