It will provide an invaluable aid to any student wishing to do well in the topic, and provides considerably more in the way of analysis and practical application than a standard textbook." --Time Higher Education Supplement
"Contains an excellent mixture of cases, materials and commentary. McKendrick's writing style ensures these are seamlessly combined." --Student Law Journal
