4.0 out of 5 stars C&A: Critical and comprehensive 13 Sep 2008
I found this book to be quite comprehensive for the C&A course, as well as critical enough to present different view points from other scholars on most of the topics. It's historical approach to contemporary issues can be challenging to comprehend at first in so much as its relevance doesn't seem appropriate. My advice is to take your time reading it. And discuss it with your peers. With the assistance of one of those exam preparation "everything-you-need-to-know-to-succeed-in-C&A" books, I managed to achieve a 2:1.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
There are text books that give you what you need to know to pass black letter law exams and there are those that make you think about the subject and put it in its social and political context. This is one of the latter. It's written in long grown up sentences for people who may be tired of terse, pithy bullet point styles. But it is generally clear and never less than interesting. I would read other texts as well and probably cases and materials, though there is an online resource that provides further details of selected judgements. I read the book for the intellectual interest; I read law at university many years ago, but still find it fascinating. My guess would be that if your main aim is to do as little as possible to get your degree, then this may not be the book for you, for reasons other reviewers have given. But if you want to see the law in its wider context, which I think you should, then this may be the book for you.

1.0 out of 5 stars A wordy, unclear and self-indulgent textbook 19 Nov 2009
I currently study on a GDL programme, and was given this textbook at the beginning of the year, to be used as the set-text for the course. I find the book to be lacking clarity, unnecessarily and infuriatingly wordy, and to engage in self-indulgently long discussions about nothing very much. Look for alternatives; I've had to.
