Editorial Reviews

Review from previous edition: "I have nothing but praise for this text. It is one of the few on the market to adopt a socio-legal perspective and one of the best of those available. It is also extremely well-written - the materials are integrated into the text very effectively and the textis clear." --Annette Morris, Cardiff School of Law and Politics, Cardiff University
