`Review from previous edition Many other text books are boring; their writing is heavy-going and immediately puts students off. This book is a joy to read; it makes the topics interesting by picking out stories that relate and explain the subject matter.' Amanda Taylor, Lecturer, University of Westminster `This book is a great introduction to law for our students; the content is always contemporary and detailed and it is written in an extremely engaging, stimulating and lively way. We find that students particularly like the interesting cases chapter. ' Joanne Sellick, Associate Dean for Teaching and Learning, University of Plymouth
