It is difficult to imagine any practitioner being able to function in this field without this exceptional repository of knowledge. It is highly recommended. * James Button & Co Solicitors * The authors of 'Statutory Nuisance' should be heartily congratulated for writing such a formidable (the book runs to almost 800 pages including index), well-researched book, which deserves a place on the bookshelves, especially of those who have a practical interest in this area of law. While the book is mainly for the English practitioner, the book will also prove useful to a Scottish readership. * SPEL *
