`... the first comprehensive study of the history of English water law...a lucid account...[Getzler] seems equally at home in the medieval period... as with the later developments circa 1580-1750, or with the development of the modern law in the nineteenth century. The depth of learning is just as impressive as its scope, with copious references provided throughout. ...Primarily...this is a doctrinal legal history. It is not narrow in focus, and could not afford to be narrow given the complex conceptual stock for modern water law. ' Jonathan Morgan, Christ's College, Cambridge, Journal of Legal History
