...the editors are generally rewarded with contributions that address the common task: they thoughtfully and imaginatively engage with the themes of Damaska's work. The resulting breadth and richness of discussion represents an appropriate tribute to his influence in inspiring and provoking new lines of inquiry in comparative criminal process. Scholars of comparative evidence and procedure will welcome this book as an important and broad-ranging resource. They will need to reflect carefully upon the arguments raised and they will want their students to do the same. Stewart Field Criminal Law Review December 2009 Jackson, Langer and Tillers have accomplished a considerable feat in putting together a set of original and insightful papers that tease out many of the core themes of Damaska's work. Certainly, both the breadth and depth of the papers contained in this volume are a fitting tribute to him. Yet the end-product is also an excellent piece of scholarship in its own right; here we have an enlightening and engaging set of papers which will be of interest to criminal and evidence lawyers, as well as those with more general comparative interests. Jonathan Doak International Journal of Evidence and Proof 13 (3), 2009 It can be readily seen ... that this book contains much that touches on current debates in New Zealand and in particular will be of interest to those engaged in reviewing the performance of the Evidence Act of 2006...Honours and Masters students studying evidence or criminal procedure should be reading the relevant papers in this book.
