Review

A wise man once said Never pick a fight with someone who buys their ink by the barrel....unless they have lied and you have Paul Tweed on your side Paul is quite simply the best. This book proves why. --Patrick Kielty, entertainer/ actor

Paul Tweed enjoys unrivalled expertise and experience in the field of media law. He has drawn extensively on that experience in producing a magisterial, insightful account of defamation and privacy law in the United States, the United Kingdom and Europe. Despite its scholarship and attention to detail, this book is highly readable and instantly accessible even to those unfamiliar with this area of law. --The Right Hon the Lord Kerr of Tonaghmore, Justice of The Supreme Court

Paul has acted for me in a number of libel disputes over the years and I'm very pleased to see that he is now sharing his unrivalled knowledge and experience in this terrific book. It is a must read in this day and age when so much libel action is front and foremost in today's press. --Liam Neeson, actor/ director

Paul Tweed's book...provides an interesting, authoritative and often controversial review of the laws of libel and privacy in the UK, contrasting the different approaches in other jurisdictions, notably the USA...As a media lawyer, I welcome the publication of this book. It is an up-to-date, valuable resource for lawyers but is also a compelling read for anyone with an interest in this area of the law. --Paul McDonnell, Journal of the Law Society of Northern Ireland, Summer 2012

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful Reference 14 Feb 2014
By John409 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I originally got this as a supplement to a libel law class that I teach. It is primarily focused on UK libel, but some of the case studies were useful. Only four stars because I think they focused a bit too long on certain topics and could have gone with a broader approach. I'm probably biased because of the nature of my own class though. If you need to research UK libel law, this is a good starting point.
