Review quote

A very useful general guide...It is the kind of book that everyone needs from time to time, whether it is to decide whether there are grounds for using the law or just to check up on something. It is well laid out and easy to use -- Labour Research Widely acknowledged as the most comprehensive and reliable guide to civil rights and liberties... Authoritative, jargon-free and non-partisan, it offers clear, expert advice to the individual on how to seek redress if those rights are abused and should have a place on every reference shelf. -- The Softback Preview Should be considered an essential purchase for anyone interested in human rights protection. -- Susan Nash, New Law Journalshow more
