The "Blackstone's Statute Books" series is designed specifically to provide students with a collection of statutes for use throughout their course, and now covers all the main law subjects. The series has been produced following careful research of the syllabuses of most law courses. As a result, the authors have been able to produce a concise collection of relevant statutes, eliminating some of the non-essential material and concentrating on the more important statutes. As many courses move towards allowing statute books to be taken into examinations, this series should be suitable for that purpose. This edition has been updated to take account of the corrections and legislative amendments as notified in the "Official Journal".
