Review quote

'It is a proposal for an up to date, simple basic introduction to the area where there is a need and no real competition' * Katriona Chong, Lancaster Law School (from a proposal review) * 'I have long been a fan of the core text series and have used most of the texts at some point during my teaching. I think they are very well organised and provide a pithy overview of key issues in any course. This would be a useful addition to the series' * Rob Jago, Surrey Law School (from a proposal review) *
