...this is one of the best and most important works on the Human Rights Act. Non-lawyers should read this book to find out what all the fuss is about and to reclaim such an important part of their political and constitutional heritage. Lawyers should read this book in order to understand how more convincingly to argue for values rather than narrow points of law ... It should stimulate a very lively and positive debate about many key issues for some years to come. (Shami Chakrabarti, Director ofLiberty, European Human Rights Law Review
