Introductions to major fields in Law. Designed to be accessible yet rigorous, they offer concise and lucid surveys of the issues associated with discrete subject areas. The aims of the series are two-fold; to pinpoint essential principles of a particular field, and to offer insights that stimulate critical thinking. By distilling the vast amount of information available on the subject area into a concise and meaningful form, the volumes serve as accessible introductions for undergraduate and graduate students coming to the subject for the first time. Importantly, they also develop well-informed, nuanced critiques of the field that will challenge and extend the understanding of advanced students, scholars and policy-makers. PDF downloads are unavailable during the trial.
