Foreign lawyers now have a readily accessible account of English law. Students wishing to obtain an overview of a topic either before or after studying it are well served. Practising lawyers may also want an introduction to an unfamiliar topic or an account of a particular area to get their bearings. The difficult question will not be why this book was written but how we coped without it. * Robert Stevens, Professor of Commercial Law, UCL * It is a very important book that offers an impressive overview of the laws of England. * Marion Simmons QC 3-4 South Square, London * The book is an essential part of any Euopean law library of repute...It is immensely useful to scholars and lawyers working in other jurisdictions seeking a clear account of English law and scholarly analysis of difficult subject areas. * Professor Dr Reinhard Zimmermann Max Planck Institute, Hamburg * I find it to be a unique achievement among scholarly law books, and am continually surprised at the depth of analysis offered by a book that appears to offer a bird's eye view of English Private Law....It is written by undoubted experts...it is lucid, succinct, and yet it is immensely broad in its scope... * Professor Sir John H Baker University of Cambridge * Review from previous edition There must be very few of us who would not benefit from, and be much better informed as a result of having a copy of English Private Law on our shelves. * Stephen Watterson, LQR, 124 *
