Review of the hardback: '… this is a stimulating … resource.' European Tort Law
'The book is doubtless a very valuable tool for teaching comparative law … it is obvious that great care has been taken in the selection of the cases and materials that are included in the book … It gives the reader a fascinating insight into the origins of the common law and civil law, and has the capacity to inspire the reader to develop a life-long appreciation for, and interest in, comparative law … this is the type of book that, in a ideal world, every single law student should be exposed to.' Commonwealth Law Bulletin
