5.0 out of 5 stars clear and comprehensive., 10 Sept. 2012

This review is from: Hanbury & Martin: Modern Equity (Paperback)
Like most/all of the textbooks in this series, this is an authoritative and comprehensive account of the law.

The presentation is what I would describe as 'classical', although some might call it bland. Some will like the classic feel and presentation whilst others will prefer a more contemporary presentation and feel. Presentation, look and feel aside - what matters is content, and this book is exceptional. Martin explains the principles concisely and with exceptional clarity, but the coverage is extremely comprehensive.

The textbook is up to date for the 2012 academic year: Jones v Kernott, Sinclair v Versailles and the Charities Act 2011 etc.

A great textbook for reference - to dip in and out of. There are simpler books for those who need a basic introduction (Bray, for example) and then there are those with a deeper, wider look at the subject (Hudson, for example) - but this book is, for me, the best student reference text for the subject area.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well written and incisive elucidation of the law, 3 July 2012

This review is from: Hanbury & Martin: Modern Equity (Paperback)
The law of trusts and equitable remedies is particularly complex and intricate. For many students of the subject, it is a daunting experience. However, the author skilfully lays out the law, with good analysis of various leading judgements (Boardman v Phipps, Stack v Dowden, Jones v Kernott, Target Holdings v Redferns (a firm), Westdeutsche Landesbank Girozentrale v Islington London Borough Council, etc) and commentary. In my opinion, one of the most useful volumes on equity and trusts around, for students.
