'This book rightfully takes its place as an important and novel addition to discussions regarding law's response to crisis.' The Law and Politics Book Review 'Quite apart from the impressive reach of its theoretical/conceptual scope, and the breadth of ground covered in respect of the substantive law addressed, more generally one cannot fail to be impressed by this work as an exercise in scholarly research. The extensive bibliography alone is testament to that. ... There is much to be learned from this work regardless of how familiar or unfamiliar one is with the issues it explores. Whilst it is inevitable that some will take issue with various views expressed in this book, no one with an interest in the field can afford to ignore it.' Journal of Law and Society
