    This book clearly sets out the rights in a commentary that succinctly includes the relevant case law.This work... will likely play an important role in the legal education of the profession, besides providing a useful handbook and reference to the scope and meaning of human rights as developed by the institutions in Strasbourg.This work... will likely play an important role in the legal education of the profession, besides providing a useful handbook and reference to the scope and meaning of human rights as developed by the institutions in Strasbourg. The authors provide a succinct account of how they see the HRA in operation, taking into account the status of the European Convention in UK law, the status of Strasbourg 'jurisprudence', the impact of the HRA on the legislative process and the scope of protection...
