Fourth in the popular and well-regarded SPTL seminar series, this is an important book which explores the concepts of privacy and loyalty in the law of obligations. Privacy and fiduciary obligations are two very topical subjects, and it is fitting that they are examined here by contributorswho are among the best known writers in this field. The contributions include Privacy as a Constitutional Right and Value by Eric Barendt; Comparative Rights of Privacy of Public Figures by Basil Markesinis and Nico Nolte; and Constructive Fiduciaries? by Lionel Smith. These essays combine practicaland academic perspectives which usefully highlight contemporary trends in the law of obligations. In addition to the essays, there is an extended Editor's Introduction by Peter Birks, a recognized expert in this field. This book will be a very valuable addition to the libraries of all practitionersand teachers involved in this area of law.
