`a distinctive and lively examination of the subject and will stimulate thought and analysis, and agreement and disagreement, in the minds of those who read it. It is clear and easy to read, perceptive and opinionated, and a splendid overall contribution to the literature ... No one can be the poorer, or the more confused for having followed this cheerful scholarly account. It demands to be read.' Adrian Briggs, The Law Quarterly Review, January 2000
`Nygh's monograph is a sustained very thoroughly researched work, drawing on a wide range of national and international sources. As a scholarly work, Nygh's book is a sustained , thoughtful and thought provoking analysis, which will doubtless occupy a focal position in the literature on this subject for many years to come.'
